Bereavement Ministry
Second Monday of the month 6:30pm St. Martin's Sacristy


Grieving the death of a loved one can be a long and painful journey. There is no timetable for the mourning that one feels. Grief work is the process that involves learning to live with the emptiness, creating meaning out of the loss and rejoining life to live more openly and fully. 

There are a number of grief support groups. Please see the resources below:


Bereavement Ministry held at St. Martin of Tours:

Whether you are a parishioner or not at our linked parishes of St. Thomas Aquinas/St. Martin of Tours,

all are invited to attend our Bereavement Ministry which meets in the sacristy at St. Martin of Tours at 6:30pm every second Monday of each month. (When there is a holiday it will be held the following week..)
