A ministry that has taken root in our diocese called “The Ministry of Consolation” has become a vital part of our parish life, generating praise and appreciation. It is a ministry where lay people become involved in ministering to parishioners at the time of the funeral rites.
The death of a Christian provides the Christian community the opportunity to express care and concern toward those who mourn. Outreach, at the time of death, brings comfort to those experiencing a loss, and revitalizes parish life for those involved in the ministry. At this time we are in great need of volunteers willing to join us in carrying out this life-giving ministry. There are several different ways to be involved and flexibility regarding the necessary time commitment. Training is provided.
Please contact Outreach at 631-265-2668 for further information. Thank you for your consideration of this beautiful ministry that touches so many.
