BEREAVEMENT MINISTRY

“Praised be God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all consolation! He comforts us in all our afflictions and thus enables us to comfort those who grieve with the same consolation we have received from him.”
-- The Order of Christian Funerals

The Bereavement Ministry is here to support those who are suffering a significant loss. Our mission is to assist our members in acknowledging and understanding their grief, as well as offer a Catholic Christian faith perspective that brings hope and healing to their bereavement. 

THIS MINISTRY OFFERS:

- Seasons of Hope Support Group: Led by trained facilitators, the group meets weekly for six sessions. The support group is offered four times a year, and all are welcome. 

- November Morning Retreat: "Facing the Holidays After the Loss of a Loved One" 

- Spring Funeral Planning WorkshopWhether it be for a loved one or yourself, learn how to pre-plan a funeral liturgy.

- All Souls Day liturgy with a litany of remembrance
