Grief Support Resources

Coping with a loss?

Help may be just a click away .

The emotional upheaval these trying times can cause is sometimes so overwhelming that even the support of friends and family may not help relieve the amount of sadness and grief you feel.
At Mission Park Funeral Chapels & Cemeteries we offer the following online grief resources:

ยป  The Ecumenical Center for Education, Counseling, Health

Grief is messy. Grief does not end. For that reason, continued support with a focus on grieving may be worthwhile. The Ecumenical Center provides individual counseling with counselors who specialize in grief work. The Center has many diverse resources to support the whole family, body, soul and mind.

Hearts hurt when a loved one dies. We need to have a space where feelings and thoughts can be expressed, understood, healed. The Ecumenical Center provides a space where the fluid stages of grief can be experienced and where meaning can be made.

Consider reading from a selection of books for grieving:

  • A Grief Observed, by CS Lewis
  • Lament for a Son, by Nicholas Woleterstorff
  • Bruised and Wounded: Struggling to Understand Suicide, by Ronald Rolheiser
  • The Bereaved Parent, by Harriet Sarnoff Schiff
  • Finding Meaning: The Sixth Stage of Grief, by David Kessler
Help For Families in Grief During COVID-19

Help For Families in Grief During COVID-19

A helpful booklet is now available for families who have experienced a death during the COVID-19  pandemic.

The booklet, available below in an e-reader format, addresses the challenges of grieving the death of a loved one during the COVID-19 pandemic including the nature of grief; traumatic loss and its triggers; ambiguous losses; and the risk of disenfranchised grief. It also addresses the importance of talking to children about death and memorialization and the difficulties of being separated from a loved one at the time of their death. The guide offers guidance on how families can meaningfully celebrate the life of their loved one and discusses the importance of maintaining your health while grieving.

A special thank you author Sara Murphy, PhD, CT and foreword author Alan D. Wolfelt, PhD for their commitment to serving those who are grieving the death of a loved one during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Funeral Service Foundation funded this guide through the COVID-19 Crisis Response Fund, and created it in collaboration with the National Funeral Directors Association and RememberingALife.com.
