“Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted.” 

Matthew 5:4

No one should grieve alone.

The Grief and Bereavement Ministry supports families of the Cathedral of St. Jude the Apostle who are mourning the terminal illness or death of a loved one. The goal of our parish bereavement ministry is to ensure that no member of our faith community grieves alone. We are here to journey with you and assist you during this very difficult time of your life.

Our desire is to be a source of love, comfort, encouragement, and support as you journey through your bereavement process from mourning to joy. 

If you are grieving the loss of a loved one, please call Deacon John Carter at the Cathedral of St. Jude the Apostle at 727-347-9702 or email him at jcarter@cathedralofstjude.org.

We are available to provide help and support at your request. We will spiritual and emotional support with the sick individual and his/her family.
