Bereavement Ministries

Purpose

The Diocesan Bereavement Ministry is designed to be a source of education, resources, and support for parishes and caregivers in their ministry to the Bereaved so that those grieving a loss through death may experience the healing comfort of God in their faith community.

Goals:

  • Provide support to those active in bereavement ministry.
  • Assist parishes interested in beginning bereavement ministry.
  • Provide training to all who are interested in bereavement ministry as a companion or facilitator of support groups.
  • Provide information about resources, publications, training, and conferences.
  • Provide up-to-date information about grief support groups in the Diocese.
  • Present grief/loss/bereavement topics at diocesan conferences.
  • Collaborate with other area groups involved in bereavement work.
