Bereavement
The purpose of the Grief Ministry Team is to offer concern and prayerful support to the families of Parishioners who die and to Parishioners who experience the death of a loved one, at the time of the death, and Grief Education and Support during their bereavement.

We attempt to do this in many ways. One is with mailings expressing caring and thoughts for personal reflection after the death of a loved one. In addition, CareNotes in the church lobby are available to help the bereaved learn from others who have experienced loss before them.

A limited selection of grief books is available for borrowing. Showings of a 12 minute DVD entitled "Whitewater: The Positive Power of Grief", with the opportunity for discussion after, can be scheduled by individuals or families. A videotape entitled "No One Cries the Wrong Way," by Fr. Joe Kempf, is for those experiencing any kind of loss and is available by calling the rectory.

The Grief Ministry Team coordinates the All Souls Day Remembrance Ceremony on November 2nd of each year, and "Prayer Service for the Bereaved" during Lent.

Health Ministry
St. Robert Bellarmine Health Ministry; Screening of blood pressure after each mass on the first weekend of each month, is a regular activity performed by a group of nurses in our parish. Programs are organized though-out the year on topics of interest to our parishioners. Programs are co-sponsored in conjunction with St. Joseph Hospital in St. Charles, MO.

 

 

 

Ministry to the Sick
St. Robert Bellarmine is a “Parish with a Family Perspective”. Our Ministry to the Sick reaches out to those that are homebound or ill by distributing Holy Communion and anointing the sick.

  • Weekly Communion
    Calls are made by Fr. Mark and other Eucharistic Ministers. If you or a family member are ill and can not make it to church, please contact the rectory to receive Communion at your home.

  • Anointing of the Sick
    Anointing of the Sick or hospital visitation, family members are asked to call the rectory @636-946-6799. Please remember, hospitals do not notify the parish of individuals that are hospitalized. Please keep us informed.


A Communal Anointing of the Sick is scheduled twice a year; once during Lent and once at Advent after every mass. Please check the bulletin for the dates.

If you are a member of the parish and are interested in becoming a Eucharistic Minister
please contact Jan McArthur / 636-724-2435

Ministry to the Sick involves training. You must be at least 18 years old and a practicing Catholic. Extra Ordinary Ministers of Holy Communion take Communion to the sick in their homes. Others help with nursing homes within the parish boundaries.
