Bereavement Ministries

In Remembrance Of...(IRO) Serves the needs of those who have experienced the death of a loved one.  By the grace of God and the gifts of the Holy Spirit, we offer prayerful solace, comfort, and help to members of our Catholic Community who are mourning.  The focus of this ministry is to help mourners understand the stages of grief and though grief sessions encourage the bereaved to talk about what they are experiencing and work through their pain in a prayerful Catholic context.  It is available for parishioners, as well as those outside the Holy Family Community to continue their faith journey.

Meets at the Holtsnider Pastoral Center on Thursdays from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Sessions occur on Thursdays, twice a year during the fall and spring; the group meets once-a-week for eight weeks.  Each meeting is 1 1/2 hours.

This ministry wants to help mourners understand the stages of grief and through the grief sessions encourage the bereaved to talk about what they are experiencing and to work through their pain in a prayerful Catholic context.
