10:00a to 12 noon - in the parish hall

Wondering how you will survive the weeks surrounding Thanksgiving and Christmas? Are you dreading these holidays, knowing that everything has changed and that happy memories from past years can’t be recreated?

Our Surviving the Holidays seminar is especially for people who are grieving a loved one’s death. You’ll learn:

  • How to deal with the many emotions you’ll face during the holidays
  • What to do about traditions and other coming changes
  • Helpful tips for surviving social events
  • How to discover hope for your future

For information call Dee Gray at 623-544-1628 


Matthew Kelly is the author of the book Rediscovering Jesus - the purple book handed out to all parishioners last Christmas as a gift from St. Clare's and Stewardship Commission.

The event is appropriate for ages 12+; youth are encouraged to attend!  Husbands and wives, boyfriends and girlfriends, single or married, young or old, Catholic or non-Catholic.

This event is about living every day with passion and purpose, and the role our faith is meant to play in the midst of it all.


Doors open at 5pm for check-in and seating.  Visit or call (859) 980-7900 for tickets.

When was the last time you invested in YOUR LIFE?  It's time.  You're worth it!
