Serving the Archdiocese of Chicago in Berkeley-Hillside, IL

Bereavement Ministry

This is a caring ministry offering support and assistance to families/individuals who have suffered the loss of a loved one. They will meet with the family at the wake and answer any questions concerning the readings and music selections for the funeral Mass. They can also meet in the parish office if the family prefers. The Bereavement Ministers also attend the funeral Mass and assist the celebrant with readings and, if needed, serve as Eucharistic Minsters.

There is one training session required for new ministers.

This is a ministry that is on an as needed basis.
