Accompanying Those Who Mourn

Accompanying Those Who Mourn will provide the training necessary for parish or Catholic community leaders to start or further develop a bereavement ministry. The training will develop leaders' understanding of grief and how to companion or accompany someone in their sorrow.  

Course Highlights:

1. The Companioning model of bereavement care – Often, we find that grief is treated from a clinical perspective or as a condition in need of treatment. However, we will find that the Companioning model of bereavement care is much more in line with our Catholic faith and one that we can all learn.  

2. Bereavement care in the Catholic context – Find out how bereavement care may look in a Catholic setting verses a non-Catholic or secular setting.
