Bereavement 2014-06-13T10:21:33+00:00

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.
