We believe that as our loved ones near death, there is an opening to the Sacred. Our parish offers a small group of singers from the Cathedral Choir willing to come into the home, hospital, assisted living facility, or hospice care setting to sing and pray. The ministry is not a performance but rather the singers come with gentle blessing to quiet fears, open hearts, and bring light to all who are present. Praying with music is a particularly powerful way to help those gathered around a loved one’s side express love and begin to say good-bye. Singers are available to come at various times of the day, on weekdays or weekends.
The ministry is offered as a gift, thus there is no charge. Please contact Wendy in the Caring Ministries office to arrange for this ministry when hospice begins, when a terminal illness is diagnosed, or when death draws near.
