Consolation Ministry

Consolation Ministry

Purpose:  To offer comfort and concern of our parish to those who have lost a loved one in death.  Volunteers listen to the needs of the bereaved and assist them in preparing for the funeral Mass.  This ministry also includes those who volunteer to bake cakes as an offering of consolation from the parish.

Time commitment:  Depends on responsibility.  Bakers make a cake and deliver it to the bereaved family.  Companion meets with the family and accompanies them through the wake and funeral Mass.
