Don’t underestimate the support your own faith community can bring in times of need and grief. Through the dying process, the funeral or memorial planning and the grieving after a loved one’s death, clergy and friends in a faith community can provide an enormous amount of support.  Welcome that support and call on your minister, priest, rabbi, llama, spiritual guide, master, Stephen’s Minister or parish nurse to help you through your difficult times.

Most faith communities offer individual counseling or support groups to walk their members through their grief however long it takes.
