Bereavement Support meets monthly at the Olde Church in a sacred environment. Join Dr. Francine Barbetta and team members for bereavement support with discussion on grieving the loss of a loved one, types of grief, and phases of grief. 

 

The team hopes to provide prayerful support to all those experiencing grief from the death of someone close to them.

This ministry is open to anybody that is mourning a loss. All are welcome regardless of their faith tradition.

Our goal is to provide a safe and spiritual place to grieve and recover.

Come and explore the healing process of grief.

GRIEF IS JUST LOVE WITH NO PLACE TO GO.

Prayer for the Bereaved
Father, God of all consolation,
in your unending love and mercy for us
you turn the darkness of death
into the dawn of new life.
Show compassion to your people in their sorrow.
Be our refuge and out strength
to lift us from the darkness of this grief
to the peace and light of your presence.
Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, by dying for us,
conquered death, and by rising again, restored life.
May we then go forward eagerly to meet him,
and after our life on earth
be reunited with our brothers and sisters
where every tear will be wiped away.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
