Works of Mercy Fund

Losing a loved one is hard, and we want to do what we can to help ease the burden. Our Works of Mercy fund assists families in the community who may not have the financial means to make burial arrangements.

To help bring comfort and peace of mind to families, the Works of Mercy fund also covers:

  • bereavement support and connections to Catholic healthcare providers
  • ministry formation for Elizabeth Ministry chapters
  • no-cost burial for families who lose children under the age of one year
  • your charitable contributions through this fund also allows us to offer burial space for clergy

Funding sources include: collections at the monthly Mass of Remembrance, donations from Gardens of Gethsemani families, proceeds from book donations and generous contributions from our community.
