Ministry of Consolation
Remembering the beloved dead and supporting those who grieve characterize the unique ministry flowing from our faith community through the columbarium.
Our celebration of the Feast of All Souls, Blue Christmas and the Feast of Holy Innocents have a particular focus on those entombed and memorialized in the columbarium. The beloved dead are also remembered within our Eucharistic celebrations on the first weekend of every month. Following these liturgies, families of the deceased are invited to light a votive in the columbarium in memory of their beloved dead.
Our support to the bereaved extends beyond our church walls. The members of our bereavement ministry walk alongside those who grieve by way of pastoral visits, conversation and the facilitation of our bereavement process.
