Bereavement Ministry


Mission Basilica San Diego de Alcalá Bereavement Ministry

Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.”  Matthew 5:4

 In addition to assisting at Funeral and Memorial Masses, the Mission’s Bereavement Ministry provides an online Grief Support Group via Zoom to provide a compassionate way to assist mourners through their healing journey.

We use The Seasons of Hope journals which help explore mourning through scripture, prayer, reflection and faith sharing.  Facilitators assist mourners in sharing their journey.  Meetings are usually on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month from 7 to 8 PM.

Bereavement Ministry members and Grief Support Group attendees are invited to one or two in-person gatherings or potlucks each year.

The Bereavement Ministry usually offers one or two workshops each year covering topics of interest for all parishioners. Information will be posted in the bulletins.

For additional information, contact Dr. Roberta Flynn at or 619-980-9244.
