Bereavement Ministry

Our Mission:   To alleviate stress by providing a luncheon or dinner to grieving families after the death of a loved one.

Grief stricken by the loss of a loved one and flooded with emotions, families still have the tasks of making many decisions, necessary arrangements and contacting various individuals.

The Bereavement Ministry hopes to alleviate some of the family’s stress. After a funeral it is customary for family and friends of the deceased to come together and share a meal to celebrate the life of their loved one. The Bereavement Ministry can provide this meal.

This service is only offered to St. Edward parishioners and is free of charge. Donations from the families are accepted and will be used for future meals.

If interested in being a part of this ministry or if you are in need of assistance, please contact Pam Kimbro at
