Bereavement and Care

This ministry is one of outreach and help for those that are suffering the grief and loss of a loved one.  Members visit with families, help prepare for the funeral wake and Mass, including contacting the choir and altar servers for the Mass, and help organize the funeral luncheon.  They meet four to five times a year, attend the Mass for the anointing of the sick, weekday Masses for the deceased and attend funerals and wakes of those families that they are journeying with.  New members with courage, sensitivity and warmth are always welcome.  Please contact Mary-Catherine Bishop if you are interested in becoming involved in this ministry.
