Funeral Teams were introduced in the Diocese of Cork and Ross a few years ago.  This is when a number of local people are trained so that they can lead the public moments of prayer that are part of the Funeral Rites – in the Funeral Home or the home of the deceased person.  They may also assist the priests with the prayers at the end of the Requiem Mass.  A Funeral Team exists in the Harbour Parishes but more people are needed.  If you are interested, training takes place in Ovens Parish Centre on Wednesdays 24th April to 22nd May 2019.  Contact Anne Kelly,

co-ordinator on 087 9826125.
