LEGION OF MARY WAYSIDE CLUB

ST NINIAN’S BEREAVEMENT SUPPORT GROUP
St Ninian’s Bereavement Support Group has been offering support to our bereaved families, at certain points on their grief journey, for a number of years. At the time of the funeral, one of the group attends the funeral to express our sympathy and to give a card to the family in the name of our Parish, assuring them of our prayerful support.
When the family is reasonably local, we make contact again by phone, after about 3 months, to express our continuing care and to see how they are. We invite the family to return to a Sunday Mass which is being offered for their deceased family member. An invitation card is given to them either in person or, more usually, by post.
We arrange the Annual Mass of All Souls on the 2nd November. A personal invitation is sent to every family who has suffered bereavement in the year.
As a group we meet every 2 months for support and ongoing planning.
We are always looking for new people to join the Bereavement Group. Is this a ministry you might feel drawn to? If you are interested please speak to Sr. Anne – 0141 434 1371 or to Fr Frank.
