The Consolation and Care ministry has a mission within the St. Francis Faith Community
to reach out with God’s healing love and compassion to those grieving the death of a loved one.

Our ministry sends cards to parishioners expressing the St. Francis community’s sympathy. It conducts four evening prayer services a year that are open to all who have lost a loved one. Each service has a special meaning and warmth to those in need. The ministry also sponsors an annual workshop on coping with grief during the holidays.

Our ministry supplies a wealth of resource material during our prayer services and in the church library. Members keep in contact with the families of the deceased to let them know that the St. Francis of Assisi community is here for them.

If you would like more information about this ministry or you would like to volunteer in the ministry, please contact Celesta Carlson at 919-818-4122.
