An event every week that begins at 9:00am on [day], repeating until August 25, 2018
Learn more about ministering to those who are mourning.
The ministry of consolation depends on faith, compassion and prayerful presence.
It becomes more effective when there is understanding of the grief process, practices of effective communication, and knowledge of varied models of consolation programs. Participants will engage in an established course of study with opportunities to learn, share and practice elements of this ministry that enhance skills and resources.
Parish staff, clergy, and volunteers are invited to participate in this 3 week series.
Facilitators: Kathy Fanger, Candee Lucas, and Laura Schemmel are members of the Parish Outreach Team for the Catholic Cemeteries in the Diocese of San Jose. They each bring a diverse background and experience to these sessions.
