“Grief never ends… but it changes. It’s a passage, not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of Faith…. It is the price of Love. (author unknown)
St. John Vianney Bereavement Ministry is an initiative created by a group of parishioners who recognized a need for bereavement and grief support within our parish community. It is not a counseling group, but an informal gathering bringing together those in our parish community who are dealing with the loss of a loved one and could use support through this difficult time. We provide a gathering place for family and friends who are grieving a loss.
Each year the Bereavement Ministry offers:
- A DVD presentation and discussion in Spring and Fall
- Remembrance Mass in November
- Dealing with Holiday Grief presentation in November
