Funeral Ministry

Funeral Ministry answers the call to fulfill two acts of mercy:   

Corporal Work of Mercy – to bury the dead

Spiritual Works of Mercy – to comfort the sorrowful and to pray for the living and the dead

Funeral Ministers play various roles while walking with the family in planning & celebrating the Funeral Mass. Once a date & time for the Mass is set, Funeral Ministers meet with the family to plan the funeral, including selecting readings, psalm & hymns. 

Additionally, other Funeral Minsters are needed to serve as Ambassadors (greeting guests to the Mass) as well as to serve as Liturgical Ministers.
