No two people have the same experience of grief. Sharing our experiences brings a new appreciation for the relationship we had and will have to come. Bereavement Care seeks to offer strength, compassion, help, healing, and hope through prayerful reflection, meditative exercise, and the opportunity to share in the common bond of loss.
If you feel called to help provide a safe and prayerful place, if you have a talent for listening, comforting, and showing compassion, understanding, and encouragement to others, Bereavement Care might just be for you.
