Instructions for my Funeral Mass/Pastoral Care of the Dying Document
The Instructions for my Funeral Mass document came about as a result of Frances Molloy’s (Founder and now Project Manager of the Pastoral Care Project) pioneering work in the community and in care settings. It developed from listening to families, arranging Eucharistic Services and helping with funeral preparations. It was clear there was a longing for these needs to be addressed.
The document which was first piloted by the Pastoral Care Project in care homes in 1997 and used within the Birmingham Diocese since 2007 has been updated in 2012 and approved by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales – it is now available from the Piety Stall; £1 each.
