Responding to a specific need, Caritas is now able to offer bereavement support to individuals &/or families who have experienced the death of a loved one due to Covid 19.
This support is unique because it will enable those participating to share their story in their own way with others who have “walked in their shoes”, not only in terms of their loss but in sharing the added pain of not having been able to follow the rites and rituals of the Catholic Church in the usual way, which is such an important expression of Faith and brings so much comfort to the dying and their families.
Meetings will initially be offered via video conferencing whilst social distancing restrictions remain in place and will be professionally and sensitively facilitated by Bernadette O’Neal, a qualified psychologist and bereavement counsellor with a deep understanding of the Catholic Faith.
