The Parish Bereavement Group is a new Parish ministry, responding to the needs of the bereaved in the parish. The group’s aim is to respond to the needs of the bereaved by offering emotional and practical help as they come to terms with their grief. Holy Mass, at the centre of the Parish Bereavement Group, will be celebrated for the deceased and the bereaved. The group is there to offer a “listening ear” to those who have been bereaved. The aim is to offer support through Christian love and friendship throughout the grieving process.

It is important to realise that this is NOT counselling but a friendship group set up in the spirit of Christian service. This will be done in conjunction with initiatives such as visits to the bereaved, monthly Masses followed by coffee in the refurbished St Mary’s Parish Hall.
