Ministry of Consolation – supporting the bereaved
Although grieving is a natural process that can be helped by sympathy and understanding of family and friends, sometimes it can be helpful to talk to someone who is not family or a close friend. The Parish now has a “befriender” who can offer such support – to listen in confidence and offer help in whatever way is needed. If you would like a visit, phone call or to speak to a “befriender” from outside the Parish, please contact Fr Jack.
This is a very new group within the Parish with just the one “befriender” at the moment so if you are interested in joining this Ministry, or wish to know more, please speak to Fr Jack in the first instance.
(2 cor 1:4)
“He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others.”
