You are invited to join the Funeral Mass Ministry. Our mission is to attend funeral masses of deceased parishioners.
It is not unusual for funeral masses to have very few people in attendance and remaining family members may not be Catholic. Even at the larger funerals, there may be a minimal number of Catholics who can actively participate in the mass responses and in singing the music. Our purpose is to provide a Catholic presence at all funeralswhile performing spiritual works of mercy by praying for the dead and comforting the family through our presence.
Just as we celebrate our entrance into the church through baptism, we want to celebrate returning to our heavenly home. If you usually attend one of the daily masses, you could attend the funeral mass instead. You can join this ministry by contacting Mary Thacker at email@example.com. You will then be notified by email with details of upcoming funerals.
