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).  Jesus walks with us in our suffering and wants to help us carry the burdens of our grief.  Saint Paul tells us that Jesus died to secure for us the promise of salvation and assures us that, if we believe in Him, we will one day be with Him in heaven, "for if we believe that Jesus died and rose, so too will God, through Jesus, bring with Him those who have fallen asleep" (1 Thes. 4:14).  In Christ, we stand firm in hope that, one day, we will be reunited with loved ones who have gone before us in the glorious presence of our Almighty Father for all eternity.

For more information or if you would like to register for any Bereavement Ministry event, please call the Parish Office at 781-438-0960.  All are welcome.
