Ministry of Hope
A New Funeral Ministry Outreach

Saint Matthew the Evangelist Parish introduces a new Ministry of Hope.

Corporal Works of Mercy are found in the teaching of Jesus and give us a model for how we should treat others, as if they were Christ in disguise. They are “charitable actions by which we help our neighbors in the bodily needs. They respond to the basic needs of humanity as we journey together through this life.” Burying the Dead is one of the Corporal Works of Mercy.

The Ministry of Hope are:

1- Greeters

2- Lectors

3- Eucharistic Ministers

4- Sacristans: Setting up sacred vessels & linens for Mass, Scripture Readings, Cleaning-Up
