Ministry of Consolation & Christian Funerals


The Bereavement Committee of Mary, Mother of Mercy Parish has been organized to provide gentle guidance and support to members of our faith community.  As parishioners grieve for a recently deceased family member, it is sometimes helpful to rely upon someone who can suggest a sequence of events, liturgy, readings, hymns and other details connected with the funeral service.

In addition, in the days and weeks after a loved one has passed, some surviving family members feel very much alone and have difficulty adjusting to the void left by the departure of their loved one.  Simply having a fellow parishioner to call can be a significant benefit to one who is grieving.

You are not alone. Our intent is to assist when  support is needed, and to simply offer our prayers when our service is not required.  Please feel free to contact the Parish Office/Bereavement Committee for further information.

You may contact us at 856-881-0909.
