At some point in our lifetime we will experience the death of a loved one. When the loved one dies, a period of grief usually follows. It is almost impossible for humans to experience loss without feeling some kind of grief. How one chooses to grieve and for how long varies for each individual.
The goal of the bereavement Ministry here at Holy Spirit Church is to offer sympathy, compassion and understanding. At the six month and one year anniversary of the death, family members are sent a letter from the Bereavement Ministry. Each letter offers support and encouragement to help the bereaved cope with this difficult first year. Through these letters, individuals are encouraged to join a bereavement group and/or reach out to our Pastor or one of the deacons.
