Funeral and Bereavement

candle

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.
