Ministry of Consolation: The experience of the death of a loved one is a time of confusion, pain, and anxiety. The mission of the Ministry of Consolation is to console and comfort the family through prayer and support, to provide guidance and assistance in the actual planning of vigil services and the funeral liturgy, to assist the priests, deacons, and family during these services, and to assess any special family needs with which the parish community of Saint Paul’s can assist. Group meets together semiannually. Contact Chris Neubauer at (336) 294-4696, ext. 219.
