The Grief Ministry's Goal
Is to help alleviate pain at the time of loss of a family member. Committee members provide comfort, assistance in planning funeral liturgies or a memorial mass, and assist the family on the day of the funeral services.
The nature of this Ministry's work calls upon your compassion and ability to reach out to grieving families and do whatever may be necessary to exhibit our love, care and hospitality during their time of grief.
Those interested in joining this group should call the church office at (925) 625-2048.
