The Consolation and Bereavement Ministry at OLQM works under the supervision of Bishop Sanchez, Father Passenant, and Pastoral Care Administrator Dennis Portelli. The Consolation Ministry assists families in preparation for the Christian Funeral Rite of the Church. We update the Funeral Liturgy Planner and Music Selection sheets as well as provide additional support to families during this difficult time for them.
Fr. Radu Titonea, chaplain at Forest Hills Hospital, periodically leads Monday evening bereavement meetings at our parish in our rectory basement meeting room.
