Bereavement Ministry

Bereavement Ministry  "For it is in dying that we are born to eternal life."  St. Francis of Assisi

The Bereavement Ministry brings faith, help and comfort to all who mourn for loved ones and friends.  We offer our church as a place where family and friends can gather to grieve, pray and support one another.  We celebrate the life of the loved one.  Our Ministers meet with families to plan vigils/funerals and help with music and reading selections.  We answer any questions the families may have.  Our ministers preside at the vigils and assist at the funerals.

The Ministry contacts the families for the first year sending letters, cards and our condolences.

We invite family and friends of our previously deceased parishioners to attend the November All Soul's Day Mass to remember our loved one.
