The Death of a Christian -
Our Faith Response
Our Belief, Prayer and Pastoral Care
A workshop in three parts
At all times, but in a special way at the time of death,
the Church proclaims the hope that is ours in the cross and the
resurrection of Jesus Christ. A deceased member of the church has a right
to the fullness of the funeral rites and the bereaved must never be allowed
to feel that they grieve alone.
As part of its ministry, The Catholic Cemetery Office offers
a program which invites the faithful - Priests, Deacons, Pastoral
Associates, Ministers of Eucharist, Word, and Music, Bereavement Teams,
Health Care Ministers and Funeral Home Directors - to explore and
gain a fuller
understanding of the Church's Belief, Prayer and
Pastoral Care at the
time of passage through Dying, Death and Burial
The Order for Christian Funerals is the primary
source for this program which is offered either in a one time Overview
format or as a Series - three 2 hour days or evenings. We encourage
cluster group participation.
This offering focuses on the stages of ritual concerning
the death and burial of the Catholic Christian.
