Care Ministry
The mission of the Shepherd of the Hills Care Committee is to assist our members when they find they need that "little bit of extra help", maybe after a surgery or illness, new baby, or other life altering events. Some of the ways we can serve are preparing a meal, providing transportation, running errands, light yard work, or simply visiting with someone.  If you would like to share your gift in any of these areas, or another one not mentioned, please call the office at
815-385-4030. The more stewards we have, the more opportunities to share God's love!

GriefShare

Grief Share is a non-denominational grief support program which gives individuals the opportunity to interact and share experiences. Grief Share is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life's most difficult experiences. You don't have to go through the grieving process alone.  

Our Grief Share group meets several times throughout the year and offers special support during the holiday season. Please call the parish office at 815-385-4030 for group meeting times.
