Bereavement Ministry

 

OUR LADY OF VICTORY’S BEREAVEMENT COMMITTEE/MINISTRY OF CONSOLATION

Our OLV Bereavement Committee has been re-established.  After the Rectory has been  notified of a funeral to take place here at OLV, the team coordinator will make contact with the family.  Assistance in planning the funeral mass is offered to them by providing resources to select readings, development of prayers of petition and organizing the involvement of friends and family in the Liturgy as they might request.  Teams of four parishioners will accompany our Deacon at the wake to provide a prayer service and extend the sympathy of our parishioners.  One of more team members will be present for the Mass to facilitate the family’s wishes and offer assistance as needed.  This committee presents our parish family in extending our concern and assistance to those amongst us who have experienced the loss of a loved one. 

The members of the team are as follows: Stan Banasik, Rich Beddome, Jackie Brennan, Noreen Bubalo, Maryrose Dunleavy, Mary Pat Handrigan, Mary Kelley, Marcy Keller, Andy Kraus, Brian McGovern, Sue McGrath, Dolores Schoewe, Jim Sheehan, Clara Spitza, and Barbara Thomas.
