our ministries


As disciples of Jesus Christ, the Bereavement Ministry of San Rafael Catholic Church exists to provide spiritual support and care in a safe and confidential environment to parishioners who are grieving a loss.  The Bereavement Ministry will work in concert with other parish ministries, as appropriate, to fulfill this mission.

Bereavement ministers strive to be the compassionate heart and hands of our Lord Jesus. No one can really feel or remove another’s pain, but everyone can walk beside and support another who is sorrowful. Those involved in our Bereavement Ministry find that in supporting others, our own faith is nourished and deepened.
