Bereavement Training Ministry at Nativity of Our Lord Parish (Etobicoke) on March 23 and April 6, 2019

About this Event

The Bereavement Ministry Training (also known as the Ministry of Consolation) is designed for those who are ministering to the bereaved in a parish setting.

New and seasoned parish bereavement ministers and volunteers are invited to join us for an interactive, two-day faith-based educational and spiritual learning opportunity.

You will learn about:

  • The Order of Christian Funerals
  • Communication and Listening Skills
  • Overview of Grief and Mourning
  • Facilitating Skills and Support Groups
  • Beginning your Program
  • Healing and Meditation
  • Self Care for the Minister

Come, learn, and share how the Christian faithful comfort mourners with words of faith and support and with acts of kindness.

In order to complete the training, participants are required to attend both days.

The program will include live presentations and video-conferencing between St. Joseph the Worker (Oshawa) and Nativity of Our Lord Parish (Etobicoke). Please note that by registering for one location, participants are required to attend the training at that location.

You are currently registering at Nativity of Our Lord Parish (Etobicoke).

There is no cost to attend. Cost of optional participant workbook: $40 (Please make cheque payable to R.C.E.C.)

Please bring your own lunch. Refreshments and snacks will be provided.
