MINISTRY OF CONSOLATION

The Ministry of Consolation will provide support and assistance to a family after the death of a loved one. Our goal is to plan a Funeral Mass that is personal, meaningful, and comforting, which includes:

  • Immediate Care for transportation, food, and home needs via the Parish’s Helping Hands Ministry.
  • Liturgical Planning for the Funeral Mass liturgy by coordinating activities within the Parish with the family. This includes the scripture readings and music, and, if desired, a vigil, internment, and a reception. Family members are encouraged to participate in the Funeral Mass. Pre-planning is encouraged.
  • Consolation support home visits.
  • Grief Support care via Bereavement Support Group meetings.

The needs of this Ministry are: Parishioners who believe they are being called to assist grieving families. Diocese requirements include Safe Environment Training, fingerprinting, and a two day training course.
