Bereavement Ministry

"Comfort the Sorrowful"

In an effort to walk with the bereaved during the difficult and painful period of mourning, Saint Patrick Parish offers a variety of programs through which we endeavor to be a faithful presence of hope and consolation through our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Although we are deeply saddened by our loss, we do not grieve as those who have no hope (1 Thes. 4:13-18).  Our faith teaches us that Christ died to secure for us the promise of salvation and assures us that we will be together with our loved ones again in the glorious presence of our Almighty Father for all eternity.

Please see our list of offerings below. For more information or if you would like to register for any Bereavement Ministry event, please call Patrice Fitzpatrick at 781-438-0200 or Mary Price at 781-438-0960.  All are welcome.
