Bereavement Ministry


Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted. (Matthew 5:4)

Our Mission

We, the Bereavement Ministry of Holy Family Catholic Church, offer emotional and practical support, in a confidential manner, to parishioners who have suffered the loss of a loved one through death. We understand that planning for the funeral can be very daunting, as most people have never had to plan a funeral and make the arrangements needed. Once the Parish is notified by the Mortuary, one of our Bereavement ministry team members will be assigned and will contact the family. The team member will guide the family through the process of planning the funeral Mass, hoping to alleviate some of the stress at this most emotional time.
