Archdiocesan Crisis Response Team

The Archdiocesan Response Team provides ministerial support in times of darkness and overwhelm.  The Archdiocesan Response Team is a ministry of hope and healing.

The Archdiocesan Response Team will respond, when invited, to assist a parish or school community in addressing the sudden death of a young person or of an adult that is of significance in the lives of many young people of the community.  The Archdiocesan Response Team is available for discrete consultation in how to assist a community in addressing a long-term and/or terminal diagnosis of an individual that will also impact the community.
