Helping
with religious and spiritual support

Where can I find spiritual support?

There are many sources of spiritual support, both for the dying and for those who are left behind.  The majority of Rutland residents are Christian, or from a Christian family tradition, but the other major faiths all take a similar approach to providing support in such difficult times.  We hope these links will help you to find support that is meaningful to you.
