The death of a loved one is a major life event that can impact individuals and families in many ways: emotionally, spiritually, psychologically, physically, and socially. Resources are available for those who have suffered the loss of a loved one, through your parish community.


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 assists:

  • Bereavement support resources
  • Ministry formation for Elizabeth Ministry chapters (faith-based ministry designed to offer hope and healing for women and their families who have lost a child)
  • A no-cost burial for families who lose a child under the age of one year
  • A no-cost burial for clergy.

Donations for this fund come from our Monthly Mass of Remembrance, donations from families in memory of their loved one, and the community.


We’ve gathered a few bereavement resources as you navigate life after loss.
