The Bereavement Ministry is one of prayerful consolation by a peer support group in response to the needs of the grieving. No member of the Faith community should grieve alone.

These are Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion who ensure that our homebound parishioners who are unable to attend Mass can receive Holy Communion.

If you or your loved one is homebound, seriously ill or in the hospital, and is in need of prayers and of Holy Communion, please let us know by calling the Parish Office at 561-483-2440.

H.O.P.E. SENIOR OUTREACH
H.O.P.E. Senior Outreach is a Parish-based ministry committed to Helping Older People Everyday who are parishioners living within Parish boundaries and who are homebound, infirm, or alone. Our H.O.P.E. volunteers wish to share God’s love with Seniors in our Parish by providing some assistance and information about community services available to them. We are not an agency of licensed professionals, so we cannot provide professional services. As a volunteer, the time you give to our seniors is invaluable.

WILLS & BEQUESTS
A Bequest IS a gift of money or assets left through your will, is vital to your Parish Church and the people the Church serves. It is a unique gift and an investment in the future. By leaving a bequest you are making a lasting difference in the life of the Parish community.
Our Lady of Lourdes welcomes charitable donations made by bequest through your Will or through Trust. In remembering our Church you also leave a lasting legacy.
There are various forms of bequests that you may make. For example, the proceeds of an unrestricted bequest may be used where needed, whereas a restricted bequest specifies the use of the donation. Bequests may come in the form of a specific dollar amount, securities, real estate, tangible property, and retirement account assets. A residuary bequest allows Our Lady of Lourdes to receive all or a percentage of your estate after all obligations have been met. If a Will or Trust already exists, an amendment can be done by an attorney through a document called a codicil, which adds a new bequest.
Our Lady of Lourdes is a charitable, not-for-profit institution; therefore, all bequests are fully deductible for estate tax purposes.
SAINT BERNADETTE'S PLACE
