GOOD MOURNING MINISTRY
Prayerful, Practical and Personal Grief Support​​

john@goodmourningministry.net

"Works of mercy alleviate suffering. If we alleviate suffering of someone else, we alleviate suffering of ourselves."
Thomas Merton​​​​​​

​​
"As a Pastor, I have celebrated hundreds of Funeral Liturgies and have always wanted to offer Catholic grief support to the thousands of people who were friend or family to the person who died. "Grieving with Great Hope" uses Jesus as a role model on how to grieve. It beautifully blends the richness of the Catholic faith and its rituals, with practical tools and personal fellowship that help people transform their loss and begin to heal their wounds." 
Fr. Dave Sizemore, Pastor- Newark Ohio
