Bereavement Ministry

St. Jude Bereavement Ministry provides the following services:

  • Special assistance and support to those who are terminally ill and their families.
  • Special assistance to the bereaved before and after death of a loved one.
  • Continued contact with the bereaved family members through phone calls, cards, and letters during their first year of loss.
  • Memorial Prayer Service held in November.

This Ministry is exceptionally important, as it assists people in their greatest time of need, when they are grieving and need help planning a funeral. From members of the Ministry: “We receive many ‘thank-you’s’ and notes after the services and everyone says ‘we don’t know how we could have gotten through this without your help’. This Ministry is a very rewarding experience.”  For information on joining, please call the Parish Office. Click here for the St. Jude Funeral Packet.
