National Catholic Ministry to the Bereaved  

"In the face of death, the Church confidently proclaims that God has created each person for eternal life and that Jesus, the Son of God, by his death and resurrection, has broken the chains of sin and death that bound humanity;" Order of Christian Funerals ©1989

When we suffer the passing of a loved one or face the certainty of our own death, the Church's funeral rites provide a place where we can grieve, remember, face our fear, give thanks, celebrate, and above all connect our personal human experience to that of the believing community and to the story of Jesus.

 

The Emmaus Ministry for Grieving Parents is a Partner in Ministry with the Archdiocese of Boston that serves the spiritual needs of parents whose children of any age have died by any cause, no matter how long ago.
