What Is Bereavement Ministry?

Bereavement Ministry is an outreach ministry to support members of our parish who are mourning the death of a loved one.  The ministry provides personal contact during the time of grieving. 

What Do Bereavement Ministers Do?

Bereavement Ministers strive to demonstrate the love and concern of our parish community in a number of ways:

  • Masses offered for the deceased
  • Remembrance cards to the family
  • All Souls Day Mass of Remembrance
  • Funeral receptions
  • Monthly Support Meetings

Bereavement ministry tries to be the compassionate heart and hands of our Lord Jesus. No one can really feel or remove another’s pain, but everyone can walk beside and support another who is sorrowful. Those involved in our Bereavement Ministry find that in supporting others, our own faith is nourished and deepened.  We ask you to prayerfully consider this wonderful ministry. Many of our needs do not require special training.  For those wishing to become more involved in this ministry,  please contact Rose Osterberg or Yvonne Calabrese
