Funeral and Bereavement


During the loss of someone we love we can feel isolated and without hope. The Community of St. Gabriel’s is here to provide support and encouragement, throughout the process of grief.

FUNERAL MINISTRY – Contact the parish office to coordinate the plans for the funeral of a loved one.

If you would like to help, please let the office know if you are available as a liturgical minister or would like to help with the funeral luncheons at the parish. To join the funeral luncheon ministry CLICK HERE.



Outreach occurs a few weeks after the funeral and is guided by the bereaved. There is information provided in this outreach to help with the grieving process.


Companion Luncheon (For Widows & Widowers)

This group meets at Maglio's Italian Restaurant on the 2nd Sunday of the month (Sept. – May) from 12:30 – 3 p.m. The luncheon provides a comfortable and compassionate place to share your common journey and personal stories. Contact the parish office to find out more or watch the parish bulletin.
