The funeral ministry is a group of dedicated parishioners who provide assistance to families at the time of death of a loved one. On the day of the funeral, members help with tasks such as making sure the church is ready for the Mass, greeting those attending, and handing out programs.
After the funeral, members follow up with phone calls and cards to the family to let them know that they have not been forgotten. Each year on All Souls Day in November, we have a memorial service to remember those who died during the past year. No training is necessary; the most important gift you bring to this ministry is a compassionate heart.
