Bereavement Ministry

Mass of Remembrance will be held on Friday, November 2, 2018 at 7:00 PM in St.Therese Church.  All are welcome to come and pray for our deceased.

Bereavement Ministry Meeting:  We would like to send people out, just as Jesus did, two by two, when a person from one of the four parishes dies. The two would go to the funeral home and meet with a family member to offer support, help them fill out a funeral planning guide for the liturgy, then if possible the day of the funeral greet them in the back of church.  This is only a brief description more information and training will be shared at the meeting on Thursday, November 15 in St. Therese Rectory Meeting Room at 7:00 PM.

Bereavement Suport Group:

You are not alone. Although you are deeply wounded, let us find comfort and healing in what we believe and in our ability to care for each other.

 Bereavement Support Sessions  will be held from 7-8:30 PM in St. Therese Rectory Meeting Room.
