Bethany Bereavement Group

Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. Mathew 5:4
Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can’t heal

The Bethany Bereavement Group are a group of parishioners who support the bereaved and grieving and share their experiences in complete confidence. The Group are specially trained to listen with understanding, sensitively and in a non-judgemental manner. They accept those suffering loss as they are and support them through the grieving process. In addition to their initial training they undertake ongoing in-service training.

The group is available to meet with the bereaved on the third Saturday of the month after the 10.00 am Mass in the Parish Centre but can provide home visits if desired. Members of the group aim to visit each bereaved family at least once. They can be contacted at any time and their contact details are on the Notice Board at the back of the Church.

Each November they organise a “Mass of Remembrance”.  This Mass is open to everyone but a special invitation is issued to the families of those who were buried from our church in the previous year.
