The Bereavement Ministry provides support to those grieving the loss of a loved-one. Following the death of a loved-one, a sympathy card is sent to the next of kin. This is followed by an empathy telephone call, providing comfort and support. Twice per year, trained facilitators offer an eight-week bereavement program for parishioners and/or others in our community who are grieving. Members of the Bereavement Ministry assist with the annual memorial Mass usually held on November 2. For more information, you can reach a member of the Bereavement Ministry through the parish office at 705-728-2985.
