Our parish St. Francis Borgia is blessed to have a Bereavement Ministry to provide support and resources for those who have suffered the loss of a loved one. This ministry assists the family in planning the Funeral Liturgy and the Funeral Mass. The members of this ministry attend the Funeral Mass.
The Bereavement Ministry, upon request, assists the bereaved family in arranging the details of the Funeral liturgy. A sympathy card is mailed to the family from the St. Francis Borgia community, followed by a card on the anniversary of the Funeral Mass. The ministry also assists the priest with the All-Souls Day Mass celebrations. Resources are available for Grief Counseling if desired.
