If you have lost a loved one to death, you don't have to go through the grieving process alone. We will walk alongside you through one of life's most difficult experiences. We offer a safe and confidential environment in which to share our sorrow, our stories, and journey through grief.
When someone dies, a special journey begins. For the one who dies, the journey is the completion of their earthly pilgrimage and their movement to God who judges all with truth and love, and has the power to grant life in its fullness.
For those who remain, another kind of journey begins. It is a journey of separation and loss, a time of confrontation with the challenge that death brings to our confidence, even to our faith. For the bereaved family and friends, this may be a very difficult and long road. Even many years later, the challenge may still remain. If you have lost a loved one to death, you don’t have to grieve alone; consider participating in the St. Rita Bereavement Support Group, and we’ll walk together through one of life’s most difficult challenges.
The group meets for eight weekly sessions and is led by trained facilitators who understand the grief process and the feeling of pain and sorrow. At St. Rita, we offer a safe and confidential environment in which to share one’s story, sorrow and personal progress through adversity.
St. Rita Bereavement Ministry is composed of compassionate and caring servants who have a genuine desire to journey with the bereaved through their process of grief. Generally, these individuals have previously suffered loss, have been healed, and recognize that it is a “calling”. Diocesan trained, Bereavement ministers facilitate group discussions in a safe and spiritual environment.
