Ministry of Consolation - Bereavement

     "I Believe in the Resurrection of the Body"

538 - Belief in the Resurrection of the dead has been an essential element of the Christian Faith from its beginnings.  "The confidence of Christians is the resurrection of the dead' believing this, we live." ARTICLE 11 from the Catechism of the Catholic Church

The Bereavement Ministry of St. Joseph Catholic Church

...was created through this belief to fulfill one of the most basic of the Corporeal Acts of Mercy, namely, to bury the dead.  In this ministry, members assist families that have lost a loved one and guide them through the funeral process and various stages of grief.  Volunteers meet with, comfort and offer support and assistance before and during the grieving and funeral process.  Liturgical planning in advance is offered by appointment.  

Meetings are held on the second Friday of the Month in FLC # 2
