Bereavement

Ministers provide emotional and spiritual support to individuals and families experiencing grief due to the death of a loved one.  They assist in planning the funeral liturgy (reading selection, and worship-aid preparation); assisting at the funeral liturgy when needed as altar servers, lectors and eucharistic ministers; providing wake and graveside services. The Martha’s (a sub-group) provide food and hospitality after the service.
