Bereavement Ministry


It is not easy to grieve the loss of a loved one. The challenge of continuing with your life in a changed way can be especially difficult as you face the holidays and other significant events. While your loss is deeply personal, you are not alone in this experience. There are other parishioners who have faced the same challenge and passed through the same grief. They now desire to accompany others through the process as well.

The Kindred Spirit - Widows Ministry provides an opportunity for a gathering of widows for fellowship, spiritual, emotional, and practical support. "Kindred" literally means similar to somebody or something; close to somebody or something else because of similar experiences or life events. The group usually meets once a month. Other events vary.
