Bereavement Ministry

Blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted - Matthew 5:4

St. Teresa’s Parish family is committed to families who have lost a loved one and to let them know they are not alone in their grief and that through faith in God they will be lead into the journey of healing.

The Christian funeral Mass is meant to bring hope and consolation to the family. It is the Bereavement Ministry’s responsibility to assist by helping the family select from a substantial amount of the readings, gospels, petitions and music for the funeral liturgy and committal.

In addition, the Bereavement Ministry offers printed programs for the funeral Mass.

St. Teresa of Avila also offers a special All Souls Mass on November 2nd of each year for families to honor those family members who have gone to be with the Lord during the year.

We also offer to members of our Parish the opportunity to pre-plan their own funeral as they feel it eases the burden of their family.

Our group also meets as needed for quarterly meetings. For more information, please contact the rectory at 921-9200.
