Bereavement Program

Overview:
The Milton Catholic Cluster (St. Agatha, St. Elizabeth, St. Mary of the Hills, St. Pius) offer bereavement support, rotating among the parishes. If you have lost a loved one and are grieving, you are not alone. Help is available. Grief can take many forms, from sadness to confusion to thankfulness for having had your loved one in your life, and back to questioning. Sometimes sitting with others who understand and listen, without putting judgment on you, can offer comfort and relief.

Memorial Mass

Overview
A Memorial Mass is celebrated in which we remember all of the deceased members of the parish that were buried the past year. A personal invitation is mailed to each family who has lost a loved one. During the Liturgy, the name of the loved one is read aloud and a white carnation is presented in their memory. This symbolism helps the families to realize that the loved one is not forgotten and that other members of our faith community share their grief and sorrow.

Programs
· Annual Memorial mass first weekend in November

 

Home Visitation

Overview: The purpose of this ministry is to bring the Sacraments and Holy Communion to our homebound and the sick in our parish. Our parish priests try to make their presence felt and visit our homebound parishioner as often as possible. There are currently 30 Eucharistic ministers in this program.

Services:
· Ministers deliver Eucharist to parishioners after daily or Sunday masses.
· Priests make approximately 100 visits each month.

 

Hospital Visitation

Overview
The goal of the Hospital Visitation program is to become more aware of patients’ needs and to bring patients the reassuring presence and unconditional love of Christ. The hospital visitation program operates in close collaboration with other parishes in Milton and Randolph to cover the Sacramental life at Milton Hospital.

Services
· Parish priests are assigned to the hospital on a rotating basis, approximately 9 days each month.
· 20 Eucharistic ministers bring the Eucharist to patients after 9:00 am Sunday and Thursday morning masses.

 

Outreach to the Elderly

Overview
The mission of the original St. Agatha Outreach program, founded in 1986, was to “assist parishioners in need, especially the elderly.” The Outreach to the Elderly demonstrates a commitment to this mission by demonstrating love in all its work, proclaiming and celebrating God’s presence through activities designed to support our elders in their infirmities. The committee is comprised of approximately 25 members.

Services
· Semi-Annual Blessing Mass and luncheon
· Parish Christmas Gift Delivery
