Spiritual Works of Mercy – Comfort the sorrowful, and Pray for the Living and the Dead.

Corporal Work of Mercy – bury the dead.

Lazarus Ministers assist bereaved families by preparing the Narthex and the Church or Chapel for the funeral. This includes setting out tables for photographs, a stand for the Guest Book, programs, and flower stands.  Our goal is to make this a seamless experience for their family and friends who come to celebrate the life of their beloved at Good Shepherd Catholic Community. Training is provided.
