Grief and Loss Ministries

St. Katharine Drexel periodically holds grief/loss support sessions to help those who have experienced the loss of a loved one or another type of great loss. This might be a recent loss or in the past, or you may be seeking a way to grow through that grief in your life.

Due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, the next series of grief/loss support sessions has not been announced. Our grief counselor/spiritual director Victoria Grimm, is offering grief support over the phone, as requested.

If you wish to set up a phone appointment for grief counseling or spiritual direction, please call either Marge or Liz at the parish office at 223-2970 and leave a message. Your call will be returned by Victoria, who will set up an appointment. If you are suffering financial hardship due to COVID-19 impact, fee will be negotiable at time of setting up your phone appointment.

Victoria can also be reached by email at

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.

-- 2 Corinthians 1:3-4


Called together by Jesus Christ, who came to restore us to friendship with the Father, we continue the work of our Savior to bring salvation to all peoples through the life-giving Church He established.


Inspired by the example of St. Katharine Drexel, we strive to serve the Lord by:


  • Making the Eucharist the source and summit of our lives

  • Building intentional community

  • Preaching the Gospel to the people of Amador County

  • Forming missionary disciples

  • Reaching out to those in need
