Bereavement Ministry

Bereavement Minstry

From the beginning of the church, Christian burial has been an important and integral part of the Catholic practice.  Catholic belief in death as the entrance into eternity, hope in resurrection, recognition of the value of prayer for the deceased, reverence for the body which remains, sense of mystery and sacredness which surrounds death-all these should be reflected in the atmosphere and ceremonies which are part of our response to death and our care as a Christian people for the deceased.

(Christian Burial Guidelines, 31.04)

Jesus said to the crowds, “Everything that the Father gives me will come to me,
and I will not reject anyone who comes to me,
because I came down from heaven not to do my own will
but the will of the one who sent me.
And this is the will of the one who sent me,
that I should not lose anything of what he gave me,
but that I should raise it on the last day.
For this is the will of my Father,
that everyone who sees the Son and believes in him
may have eternal life,
and I shall raise him on the last day.”
John 6:37-40
