In 2003 this ministry was initiated to provide a quiet, warm unassuming presence for those suffering the loss of a loved one. Members meet with the bereaved to help the family select readings and music to make the funeral as personal as possible. The members attend the wake and provide support at the funeral Mass by their participation. After the funeral, the committee follows up by phone or note to see how the family is doing.
