Training for Young Ministers

Saturday February 12th has been set aside as a training day for young ministers – transition year and up.

This day will be an opportunity for young people to come together in one venue in order to train to serve as Readers

or Ministers of Holy Communion in their parish.

Further details will go out to parishes in January. Parishes might like to begin recruiting young people in anticipation of this training

A pilot course for Funeral Ministry in the Parish

Parishioners in some parishes in the diocese are already actively sharing in funeral ministry, for example by leading prayers in the home/ funeral home. This participation in funeral ministry is likely to grow and expand in the future.

We are currently working on a training course for this ministry that we hope to offer to parishes on a pilot basis in the Spring.

We would like to hear from parishes who are interested in taking part in this pilot course.
