Bereavement Ministry

This ministry is composed of a group of committed parishioners who bring a myriad of life experiences to the care and support for families following the death of a loved one.  They offer spiritual and emotional support as well as expertise in liturgy planning for funerals and celebrations of life.  In addition, they follow up with families through cards and an annual invitation to a Memorial Mass on All Souls' Day, November 2nd.  

All members strive to follow the second of the eight Beatitudes of Jesus, "Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted."
