Pietro Perugino’s Resurrection

The Bereavement Ministry remembers those who have gone before us marked with the sign of faith. The ministry extends support to those who are grieving and healing from the loss of their loved one.

Our ministry desires to reach out in the name of the parish to those who have suffered the death of a family member.

We hope to accomplish this by:

  • Sending a rose in a vase with card of parish sympathy and concern at the time of the wake.
  • Following this with a card of remembrance at three months, six months, and one year.
  • Being available for group or one-on-one visits, “just to listen.”
  • Sponsoring sharing sessions throughout the year for people who would find this kind of sharing helpful. This would be a group limited to ten persons or fewer and would be open to anyone in the Fairfield-Hocking Deanery.

Bereavement Moderator: Brian McCauley

Bereavement Members: Sharon Boyden, Debbie Clarridge, and Mary Lee Uhl.

Upcoming Bereavement Session: Wednesday, 12 March, 2014 at 7:00pm in the Rectory Basement (corner of High and Chestnut Sts.)

Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.

May the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
