Thank you for your interest in Blessed Sacrament’s Bereavement Ministry. We will be asking just a few questions related to 3 areas of this Ministry: Support Group, Funeral Support and On-Going Support. Support Group: this group provides an emotionally safe environment where the bereaved may express their grief freely without judgement. Providing care, comfort and support to individuals who are hurting from the passing of a loved one. Meeting will initially begin on a monthly basis and all parishioners are welcome to join regardless of when your loved one passed.Funeral Support: these Volunteers provide support to the family by attending one or all of the following: Visitation, Funeral Mass or Graveside Internment. On the rare occasion the family requests a luncheon, in coordination with the office, these Volunteers, will assist with the arrangements and may attend the luncheon.On-Going Contact Support: these Volunteers provide support to the family after the funeral services are complete over the course of the next year through periodic contact using various methods (cards, phone call, etc.).
