Funeral Ministry Team Every parish is encouraged to have a funeral ministry team consisting of religious and lay, men and women, trained in providing support at a time of loss, to organise a Christian funeral that the Church offers the bereaved. Funeral Ministry Team may visit the bereaved family either on their own or with the priest, deacon, or parish pastoral worker to sympathise with the family, to bring the peace and hope that the Gospel has to offer and to assure the bereaved family that the parish community is praying for them. They will also bring the Scripture Readings and sample intercessions for the Prayer of the Faithful which will be used during the funeral ceremony. They may help in choice of the appropriate readings and prayers. The diocese is committed to providing ongoing training to funeral ministry teams both centrally and locally. If interested in joining the Parish Funeral Ministry Team, please contact one of the parish clergy.
