Archdiocese of Milwaukee
Catholic Cemeteries and Adult & Family Ministry
The support of Bereavement Ministry in the Archdiocese is a joint effort provided by two agencies: Randy Nohl and Barb Krieser in the Adult & Family Ministry Department and Patrick Dean and Chuck Murphy in the Cemeteries Division.
Recently, Patrick and Chuck went to Burlington to offer presentation on Grief in all aspects. Patrick covered the practical and Chuck the spiritual, but grief centers in the mind and soul and body of a person. No matter how we may try to separated different parts...there is still one person handling all the moments and meaning.
These pictures are from the presentation Chuck gave on Thursday, June 17 at the Senior Center for members of both parish communities — St. Mary and St. Charles Borromeo. Sr. Mary Joyce Merten, SSND, Pastoral Associate at St. Mary's, coordinated both presentations. [See four pictures from Chuck's session below.]
