Funeral Ministries

There are many opportunities to help with funerals at Sacred Heart. These funeral ministries provide comfort and service for those who have lost a loved one.

Funeral Acolytes

Funeral Acolytes are adult members of the parish family who assist with all funerals at Sacred Heart Church. Their presence expresses our prayerful solidarity with those mourning the death of a loved one.

Funeral Greeters

Compassionate individuals welcome family and friends to our parish for the funeral liturgy, pass out funeral programs, assist in the set-up for the funeral Mass, and simply are there for the family as needed.

Funeral Lectors

Funeral Planning Ministry

Those involved in the Funeral Planning Ministry meet with family to assist them in planning a funeral for a loved one. They explain the practices associated with the Rite of Christian Funerals and guide the family in selecting readings and music. They suggest ways for friends and family members to be involved in the funeral Mass and assist in completing the Funeral Mass Planning Form. This information is used in creating the worship booklets for the funeral Mass. Funeral planners also assist parishioners to pre-plan their funeral, and the plans are filed at the Lee Parish Center.
