The Circle of Friends Bereavement Ministry is a dedicated and rewarding ministry. We are with the bereaved family members offering funeral planning assistance.

A friend, to assist with planning the appropriate funeral liturgy and music; obtaining the Sacristan, altar server, and Eucharistic Minister(s) for the Funeral Mass as well as attending the funeral rites, recognizing the spiritual bond that still exists between the living and the dead and proclaiming the belief that all the faithful will be raised up and reunited where death will be no more. This ministry also makes available a Bereavement Support Group, which has two sessions, one in the Fall and one in the Spring. For any questions specifically regarding the Support Group, please contact Diane Jones at 772-344-1771.
