“Bear one another’s burdens.”
This ministry of consolation is an effort to have peer ministers available to walk with those who have suffered a death in the family. We are not counselors, but “hearts with ears”. At Saint Bernard’s we call our ministry, “Simon’s Shoulder”. In the Gospels, Simon is asked to help Jesus carry his cross. Hopefully this ministry, in some small way, can help carry the cross of grief for those in our parish.
Support may begin with a phone call, a personal visit, or a card in the mail. If we can be of any help, please contact the parish office at 918-299-9406 or Deacon David Johnson at 918-493-2842, 918-200-5917 or via e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
