Bereavement Ministry

What We Offer

The Bereavement Ministry extends sympathy and prayers of the parish to the families and individuals who are mourning the death of a loved one. Volunteers send cards, make phone calls and visits, write notes, plan educational and spiritual events, keep databases and design cards and notes.  

Purpose: Our ministry gives spiritual, emotional, and physical support to those who have lost a loved one through death or miscarriage. As Christians we follow the example of Jesus, as he comforts those who mourn: MT 5:5 "Happy are those who mourn; they shall be comforted."

Who Belongs: Open to all members of the Parish

How Often Do They Meet: There are approximately 70 funerals at Holy Spirit per year. Much of the ministry can be performed from the home. Meetings are held as needed.
