Health Ministry

Grief – Fr. Joe will give a presentation on Tuesday, September 29 at noon in the Parish Center on grieving.  The presentation will be about 50 minutes.  Please join us. This will be important for anyone grieving or having those close to them who are grieving.  Bereavement Ministry Volunteers are encouraged to attend. The team will meet briefly after the presentation.  No refreshments will be provided but you are welcome to bring your own lunch or drink.  As with all gatherings, masks are needed if social distancing cannot be provided.

“When we attend to the needs of those in want, we give them what is theirs, not ours. More than performing works of mercy, we are paying a debt of justice.”

— Pope Saint Gregory the Great
