Ministry of Consolation Facilitator Training
The Office of Faith Formation offers Ministry of Consolation Courses to assist parish volunteers for this.
Ministry of Consolation (Level I) is a ten-hour course to provide a foundation for understanding the general principles of the Order of Christian funerals as well as preparing the volunteer in how to prepare wake services, give ongoing support to the family, and how to participate during the funeral liturgy.
Ministry of Consolation II (Level II) is a follow-up ten-hour course that builds on the foundation of the Level I course. Topics include instruction on liturgical issues, multicultural concerns, and specific ministerial skills.
