Bereavement Ministry

Bereavement Ministry

Annunciata Bereavement Ministry has been assisting grieving families since 1992.  The present leadership team of Judith Harkenrider and Eleanore Ulaszek, both Secular Servites, and Sister Ann Marie Caporale, OSM, are now inviting other interested persons to assume the Leadership Role of this very important ministry.  If you are interested in serving in this ministry, please contact Fr. Jose or call the Rectory. 

Jim Betkowski, Director and Owner of Elmwood Funeral Home, works hand in hand with the Team Leaders.  Over the years, he has generously supplied the Bereavement books containing helpful, inspiring stories to guide bereaved persons through their pain, which eventually leads to acceptance.  Jim helps coordinate the Memorial Masses, for which he supplies the candles and refreshments.  Everyone who attends our Bereavement sessions and Memorial masses has experienced the benefit of healing in some way. 

The present Team invites you to attend any of the upcoming sessions: Feb. 2, 9, 16, 23 and March 1 & 8, 2020, in the Rectory meeting room from 2:00 to 3:30 PM, to see how the Team ministers to the Bereaved and helps them through their grief.  Also, is you are thinking of taking on this ministry, you can attend the next Memorial Mass on Monday, March 9, 2020 at 7 PM.

Please prayerfully consider joining this very important, healing ministry. Hopefully we can have new Team Leaders in place by the second series of 6 sessions which will begin on Septemeber 27, 2020.

Thank you.

Sr. Ann Marie Caporale, OSM

Every Thursday after the 8am Mass, a Group of people meet in the Mary Chapel to read and discuss the coming Sunday Readings. This casual, friendly, informal meeting begins with morning coffee and rolls and then moves into the Mary Chapel to break open the readings from the old and new testaments making the living word of god relevant to our lives in the 21st Century. Through reading, discussion and faith sharing, you will appreciate the liturgy of the word at mass in a new and more meaningful way. All are welcome.
