The Bereavement Ministry of Christ the King Parish reaches out to families of deceased parishioners at the time of their loss of a loved one. It is our goal to offer support to the families and prayers and masses for the deceased on behalf of the parish. Two members of the group attend each funeral Mass to offer prayers for the deceased and assistance to the families. If possible, we attend the viewing and make follow up phone calls to the family. Cards are sent to the families during the course of the year. The ministry also assists in the planning of the yearly All Souls Day Mass in memory of those who have passed away during the year. Meetings of the group are held monthly from September through May.
Our hope is to continue to show others that the Church family is present for their family in time of need. Please consider helping others by becoming a part of the Bereavement Ministry. “Blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted.”
