Ministries - Consolation

Ministry of Consolation assists in the planning of funeral rites and helps to bring comfort, peace and healing to those who grieve.  When a member of our St. Francis community dies, we are called to minister to those who have suffered the loss.  Some of the ways stewards can help are:

  • Assisting the family in planning the funeral mass, both the liturgy and the music (training for ministers is provided)
  • Being present at funerals where family gatherings will be small
  • Being a lector, greeter, or hospitality minister
  • Occasionally coming to gather to make cards that are sent to families who have suffered a loss.
