Parish Resources

Bereavement Ministry

The purpose of this ministry is to pray for, comfort and care for loved ones grieving over the death of a St. James parishioner.  Any adult parishioner is welcome to become part of this ministry of care. A Grief Support Group will meet on the 1st Thursday of each month, at 7:00 pm in the brides’ room. We want to encourage the sharing of thoughts and a healthy release of feelings; and ensure that no member of the parish family will grieve alone.
