"Letting go (death) and coming to new life (rising) is a process that occupies the center of every ministry. When we experience the physical death of someone close-a spouse, child, parent, or anyone who is a significant part of our lives-the core of our being and our faith often seems under assault. Such difficult times become an opportunity for the parish to offer Bereavement Ministry." (Joan Guntzelman).
St. Mel Parish offers support to those who are mourning the loss of loved ones:
The Bereavement Support Group for Adults...If someone close to you has died and your heart is hurting, there is a place for you at St. Mel. A group of people come together to support one another through this difficult time and for as long as you need.
