Have you recently lost a loved one?
Our Bereavement Ministry is here to help you through the grief process. We want to help bring you peace on this difficult journey.
We offer one-on-one support, healing resources, and a 6-week small group two times a year. You are not alone. This provides a safe, confidential place to share your experience of grief and to nurture healing with the hope of our Catholic faith. This series offers compassionate, non-judgement support in a confidential, Catholic prayer setting.
If you’re seeking support or more information, please contact the Pastoral Care Office at (608) 231-4617.
