Bethany Bereavement Support Group

“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures - have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.”  Henri Nouwen, (1932-96) Catholic Priest & Author.

Bethany Bereavement Support Group is a voluntary parish based ministry dedicated to supporting those who have been bereaved and are grieving. The group derives its name from Bethany, the biblical home-place of siblings Martha, Mary and Lazarus, and recalls the visit of Jesus to the sisters on the death of their brother. As of January 2019 there are thirty nine parishes in the Diocese with Bethany Teams. Bethany volunteers provide a compassionate, non-judgemental and fully confidential support service to those who are experiencing the loss of another, regardless of faith, background or nationality. Our specially trained volunteers are able to hold a safe and trusted space for anyone needing either to talk or simply to be in the presence of someone who will respect their own unique experience of grief. Grief left unattended can be detrimental in the short and long term to our mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. At Bethany, we can help in the process of tackling or exploring the difficulties that grief often presents, and its accompanying feelings, which may be anger, loss, regret, fear, shame, emptiness or uncertainty. While the services offered by Bethany Bereavement Support vary somewhat from parish to parish, The Ramoan, Ballintoy and Ballinlea Parish Bethany Support Group provides listening support (NOT COUNSELLING) to the bereaved, telephone support to the bereaved and home visits (usually about six weeks after time of death) to the bereaved. Our parish group needs more members and the next Bethany Bereavement Training Course will commence on Thursday 14th March. To register interest in the next training please contact the Bethany Diocesan Co-ordinator Claire Dowds (07557882183 or E-mail: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ), the Parish Office (20762223: Mon-Fri 9am-2pm) or the parish Bethany Group on 07519471481.
