We Are A Ministry of Compassion and Peace
So many folks have asked me, over the years, to provide a number of ministerial services. I am a minister and I am so truly honored with each request. Although the Ministry of St. Francis of Assisi caters to animals and their people, it's the humans who are needing the pastoral care and support. Please do not hesitate to contact me about any pastoral services that I can provide for your spiritual care of support.
Wedding Officiant -
Besides prayer requests, wedding officiating is my next most requested service. I am registered with the state of Louisiana. For most weddings, a gift to the pastor is about $200 is normal for a simple, local service. For a more complex wedding or for a wedding outside of a 25-mile driving radius from Covington, Louisiana, a gift of $300 is normal. This service includes two telephone consults and a personalized "catered-to-you" format with one-time (if needed two-time) edit of wedding script. For wedding rehearsal attendance, please consider a adding $50 to the honoraria. A $75 is required to hold your wedding date, is non-refundable and is applied to your wedding service honorarium. For more information, email here with "Wedding" in the subject line.
Life Transitions (Funerals and Memorials) -
Services include personalized funeral service or memorial, celebration of life service, graveside service or internment of ashes. Honorarium of $250 is normal for a local service in 25 miles of Covington, Louisiana. Please consider adding $50 for each 25 miles beyond. I help you create an end-of-life celebration which is designed, crafted and delivered with reverence and respect. For more information, email here with "Funeral" in the subject line.
There are other ministry services, such as Baptisms, Anointing of the Sick, Breaking of the Bread (Communion), Dedications and Blessings that are available. I've also done a Divorce Ceremony which was very similar to a Wedding Ceremony. It was a beautiful service that brought a lot of help and healing for the loved ones for this divorcing couple.
