Bereavement Ministry

bereavement-ministry-booksThe Bereavement Ministry aids in the grieving process by visiting families at the funeral home, attending the funeral Mass, meeting them for lunch, and allowing them to express their experiences of loss. Four times a year, parishioners who have lost a loved one from our parish or have had a family member buried from our parish receive a booklet: Journeying Through Grief. For all who have died in the past year, a special candle-lighting ceremony is held on, or close to, All Soul’s Day and a family member is asked to light a candle in their memory, with a social to follow.
