This month in 'Gather and Pray', we wish to focus on a different way, which is the act of faith, as people gather to pray at the funeral for their deceased relative.
Have you thought about your own or your loved ones funeral?
My Funeral Mass Instructions document may help you think about this, your wishes and responsibilities. This document approved by the Catholic Bishops Conference of England and Wales has, since 2007, been much valued by individuals and parishes around the country.
In response to the increasing number of enquiries from individuals and from parishes the Pastoral Care Project has partnered with Redemptorist Publications to revise and produce this beautiful and practical document. It also includes a revised Care of the Sick and the Dying section, which is important for individuals receiving formal healthcare.
We are so grateful for this partnership ensuring that the My Funeral Mass Instruction and Care of the Sick document is more accessible for all.
For individual copies and discounted bulk orders please purchase direct from Redemptorist Publications by following the link:https://www.rpbooks.co.uk/my-funeral-mass-instructions
The Pastoral Care Project has workshop resources available. These are ideal for parishes wishing to train people in assisting individuals and families who may like to talk about their funeral wishes or care of the sick plan.
