Grief Support / Bereavement Ministry Training

Next date: Jan 12, 2019 - click here for time schedule - English

Faith communities have the potential to do much good. Grief, the loss of a loved one, traumatic experiences often raise profound spiritual questions; however death and loss is very often not dealt with beyond the funeral though the grieving process continues.

MorningStar Renewal Center has developed a team of professionals in grief support to offer quality training to area faith communities and individuals interested in being trained for serving in bereavement ministry at their parish.

Secular programs for grief support often shy away from spirituality. This workshop acknowledges spirituality as an important component and an essential resource for the bereaved. This model of grief support training is unique in that faith and spirituality are intentionally integrated. Clergy, teachers, laypersons in ministry and helping professions will gain from this workshop.

Take advantage of three opportunities for training in 2018-2019. Two-day training sessions will take place

  • Sept. 22 and 29, 2018
  • Jan. 12 and 19, 2019
  • May 4 and 11, 2019
  • Or choose your own dates and host at your own parish.
