Hospitality Coordinators for Funeral Visitation

What We Offer

            When visitation is held at the Church, the Hospitality Coordinators are asked to be present and to serve as liaisons for the deceased's family and the mortuary representatives as well as the presiding priest.  They ensure that needed equipments is available for the family and the people from the mortuary and answer any of their questions.  this includes putting on soft music, helping with videos, putting banners out and distributing programs.

            Before all funerals, whether ther is visitation or not, the Coordinators assist the Adult Servers in making sure that everything is ready for the Celebration of Life.  After the Funeral Mass, the Coordinators work with the Adult Servers to put things away and make sure the Church is returned to order.

            At the present time, there are three coordinators: Marleen Norton, Mary Peat and Ginny Haag, who are involved in this ministry.  This ministry requires no meetings.  There needs to be a least one coordinator in attendance for each funeral Mass held at Holy Spirit.

Contact Information

If you are interested in joining this group and/or becoming a coordinator, please contact Marleen Norton at 317-492-9597 for more information.

Bible Quote

Brothers and sisters: No one lives for oneself, and no one dies for oneself.  For if we live, we live for the Lord, and if we die, we die for the Lord; so then, whether we live or die, we are the Lord's.  For this is why Christ died and came to life, that he might be Lord of both the dead and the living.
- Romans 14:7-9
