Bereavement Support Ministry
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Our Bereavement Support 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.
Volunteers are asked to attend funeral Masses held at St. Mary's to offer support to the family and friends of the deceased.
We ask you to prayerfully consider this wonderful ministry. This ministry does not require special training and the time commitment is one hour on an as needed basis.
