Bereavement and Funeral Resources

Bereavement Ministry

Angelita Salyers

Losing a loved one is devastating.  The St. Joan of Arc Bereavement Ministry provides immediate support following the death of a family member, and ongoing support for those who are struggling with their loss.  Through personal contact and with the affirmation of God’s continued love and presence, we will help the grieving move through the grieving process and adapt to their new life.

This ministry prepares and serves lunch for families after a funeral Mass.  This allows the family and friends time together to grieve and support one another.

Volunteers for a funeral meal can assist by providing food items, helping set up, preparing the meal, serving the meal, and/or cleaning up after the meal.
