The bereavement ministry offers support and help in times of greatest need in the death of loved one. There are many details to handle while suffering grief and it is a consolation to families to have help planning funeral liturgy. We consider it an honor and a privilege to serve them in this way. Meeting with family members at Parish Center, bereavment ministers work with them in choosing hymns, readings, and petitions for the funeral mass. Families leave, assured the bereavement member will be present at the funeral mass to carry out their wishes.
