Bereavement Support Ministry

Bereavement Support Ministry Mission Statement

    Our Bereavement Support Ministry offers support to those grieving within our Church, as well as our Catholic community.

  Our mission is to provide those who have lost a loved one, compassion and comfort, find acceptance and inner peace. We are here to bring spiritual and emotional support in unity with the suffering Lord.

About The Bereavement Support Ministry             

The Bereavement Support Team at Holy Ghost Church provides emotional and spiritual support for people who have experienced the death of a loved one.

Members of our Ministry are volunteers who have received training and formation in order to journey with people who are grieving.  Their life experiences allow them to provide heartfelt support during the very difficult stages of grief.
