Grief Ministry

Be merciful to me, LORD, for I am in distress; my eyes grow weak with sorrow, my soul and body with grief.
~ Psalm 31:8-10

Grief ministers want to ensure that members of our faith community do not grieve alone. To this end, our caring ministers provide support in the way of a phone call, cards at anniversaries or a personal visit, if necessary. The level of support depends entirely on the needs of the individual.

We also offer several programs throughout the year including:

  • Quad-Parish Hope Series
  • Mass of Remembrance on All Souls Day
  • Grieving during the Holidays

Watch the calendar for these additional programs.

Becoming a Grief Minister

If you have experienced grief or assisted someone dealing with grief, you may consider becoming a Grief Minister.

Your experience won’t exactly make you an expert, but you understand what helps to offer comfort and support to others who are now going through what you did in your own life.

As a Grief Minister, you are enriched with an experience of standing in the place of Christ, offering healing to others and a sign of hope for their own recovery. Training is available and required.
