How to Volunteer
Ministry of Consolation
In Baptism, we are all made one in Jesus and one with each other. We are called to serve and support our brothers and sisters and even those outside of the Christian family.
A beautiful way we can do this is through the Ministry of Consolation - one of the Corporal Works of Mercy. As ministers of consolation, we are privileged to provide comfort and support as we journey with families as they prepare for the funeral of their loved one.
To choose the readings and the mnusic for a reverent Christian funeral liturgy, we assist them and accompany them through the process and the day itself.
Our Mission ... is to be the loving face of Christ as we extend our services to our brothers and sisters in their time of need.
There are eight roles to be filled in this ministry:
Companion - Individual personal training at your convenience.
Minister of Communion - Some guidance is all that is needed.
If you would like to talk about this or get more information, pleawse call the Parish Center at 516-785-2333 and leave your name and number for Jane Serio, who will be happy to contact you.
May the Holy Spirit guide you in your prayerful consideration.
