Bereavement: When a member of our community dies, it is our responsibility and privilege to support the family with our compassion, prayers and practical help.
Members of this committee
- Ensure the bereavement flag is hung
- Write condolences to the family
- Have a Mass offered
- Help at funerals and wakes, as needed
- Share resources on death and dying issues
Occasionally the committee hosts memorial services or education programs. The committee also maintains the annual Resurrection Scroll at Easter and created and maintains a parish Book of Resurrection which lists every death since the inception of the parish.
