Bereavement ministry is an organized response to the needs of people grieving the death of a significant person(s) in their lives. Organized efforts to meet this call are available at parish, diocesan, and community levels, through Catholic social service agencies and independent organizations. Many parishes provide comprehensive resources throughout the cycle of loss and grieving. Contact the Director of Family Life, Cathy Loh, for additional help at 561-775-9557.
The National Catholic Ministry to the Bereaved was formed to provide a Catholic response to bereavement, offering pastoral and spiritual support. Healing, faith and spiritual growth are sustained through understanding and education. Various resources are available through their website at www.Griefwork.org
