Funeral Coordinator


In the Body of Christ there exists a wonderful variety of ministries, which are especially evident when we gather around the altar to worship God. By virtue of our baptism in Christ some of us are called to serve as Funeral Coordinator.

The Funeral Coordinator works with the Priest / Parish Administrator to coordinate the various ministry requirements for a scheduled funeral. The coordinator sees that a sacristan, altar servers, lectors, and Eucharistic ministers are scheduled to serve as necessary.  Working with the sacristan (or serving as the sacristan), the coordinator prepares the church and ensures that everything is in place for the celebration of the liturgy.  Following the liturgy, the coordinator makes sure that the church is reset with everything returned to its proper place.

Prayer for a Funeral Coordinator

God of Glory, your beloved Son has shown us that true worship comes from humble and contrite hearts.  Bless our brothers and sisters, who have responded to the needs of our parish and wish to commit themselves to your service as Funeral Coordinators.  Grant that their ministry may be fruitful and our worship pleasing in your sight.  We ask this through Christ our Lord.  Amen
