Mission Statement
Our mission is to provide spiritual guidance, support, and consolation throughout the mourning process to members of our community who have lost loved ones by assisting with the planning of the liturgy, being present at the funeral service, and journeying with them through their bereavement. We also sponsor liturgical remembrance ceremonies to honor deceased members of our community and we conduct outreach activities to members of our parish family who live alone all in accordance with the vision statement of The Catholic Community of the Holy Spirit.
