Bereavement Ministry

Saint Joseph Bereavement Ministry reaches out to all those in the parish who have experienced the death of a loved one.

We attend the Funeral Mass or Memorial Service held at St. Joseph Cathedral, assisting the priest and families as needed.

We provide assistance in planning a funeral or Memorial Service, and invite family members to participate in the Liturgy.

A light reception may be offered if desired.

Sympathy cards are sent to the bereaved family after the Funeral or Memorial Service. Each Year the Parish offers a Memorial Mass, celebrated in late October or early November followed by a Community Reception for those families of loved ones who have died in the past year.
