St. John Nepomucene Catholic Community has support groups for those with a variety of needs including the loss of a family member, health concerns, imprisonment, addictions or recoveries.


For those who have suffered the loss of a loved one, whether it be a spouse, older child or friend.  Meetings are held on a monthly basis, second Thursday of every month at 6 p.m. in room 11 of the parish office.  (Enter door #9)


Our mission is to provide support and spark HOPE and healing in families as they navigate through their grief journey caused by the loss of a pregnancy or infant loss.

We hold a monthly meeting open to grieving parents and family members seeking peer support. See our Facebook group, Ember of Hope, for meeting details or call the parish office at (920) 788-9061. Our Facebook group is also where you can chat with others who have suffered the loss of a child. We also deliver care packages to families going through a loss.

If you or anyone you know has experienced the loss of a child, whether you be a parent, grandparent or family member, please contact the parish office at (920) 788-9061 to let us know so we can reach out with prayer and offer support.
