Bereavement Support Ministry

“A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam. And for a brief moment its glory and beauty belong to our world. But then it flies on again, and though we wish it could have stayed, we feel so lucky to have seen it.”

bereavement logoBereavement Support will be offered for all persons grieving the death of a loved one. If you have recently lost a loved one, your first year or subsequent years without them can be painful. Many times people are caught in the dilemma of the need to grieve and the pressure from others to get over it. Those who are grief-stricken need help to find ways to take care of themselves.

To register for the group or for more information, contact Pastoral Associate Rose Gordyan at ext. 227.
