BEREAVEMENT

At the heart of this ministry is the extension of the consoling embrace of the faith community of St. Michael and guidance to the bereaved family on things associated with the funeral preparations and services.

Death does not wait for any one; it does not wait for us to be ready, we who are left behind.  When the death of a loved one happens, many are left with the proverbial question, “What do I do now?  Who should I contact first?”

To lessen the confusion that the illness and/or death of a loved one bring, we offer the following information and suggestions:

  • At the time of serious illness of a loved one, call the Funeral and Bereavement Ministry at the parish office at (619) 470-1977 so that one of our priests may come to the hospital or your home to administer the sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick.  Additionally, if you desire, a staff person or volunteer can provide you with guidance and counseling.
  • When a death occurs call the funeral home and make an appointment to arrange the funeral services: wake, vigil service, funeral mass and committal. Usually, the funeral home calls the Funeral and Bereavement Ministry Office of St. Michael while you are at the funeral home to make arrangements for the use of the church and for the services of a priest or a layperson who will preside at the vigil service, for the services of a priest who will preside at the funeral mass and the committal.  Preliminary information about the deceased and the family is obtained at this time by the funeral coordinator.

For more information, please contact Resfina Torrevillas at (619) 470-1977, or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Deacon Carl Shelton

dcn-carl-shelton

Deacon Carl Shelton was an executive with two global pharmaceutical companies before relocating Anne, his wife, and sons to San Diego where he entered the permanent diaconate formation at St. Francis Seminary.  While in formation he founded a charismatic prayer group at St. Brigid Parish.  After ordination in 1980, assigned to continue at St. Brigid, he supervised healing ministries, prayer groups and hospital visitations.

Six months after ordination he traveled to Calcutta, India where he had received permission to live and work in community with Mother Teresa and the Missionaries of Charity.  While there, he worked in the House of the Destitute & Dying, the Missionaries of Charities Leper Colony and had daily meetings after morning mass with Mother Teresa.

After returning to San Diego in 1982, he was mandated by Bishop Maher to begin a diocesan food program.  With the financial help of Fr. Joe Carroll, the Share Food Assistance program began.  The food program outgrew the boundaries of San Diego and, in 1983, Deacon Carl founded World Share to serve outside the diocese.

World Share grew to serving over 500,000 families a month in 25 regions of the U.S.A. – combined with more than 800,000 families in Mexico and 200,000 families in Guatemala.  In 1991 World Share was separated from the Diocese of San Diego but continued to assist many organizations in Mexico, Guatemala, and the United States.  One of the organizations assisted was Gente Nueva, a Mexican organization under the Legionnaires of Christ which started a micro-bank for the poor named “Compartamos” (We Share).  That bank, 20 years later, has branches in all 50 states of Mexico, and in 2007 loaned over $900,000,000 to people who have no other source of credit.  The average loan is under $500.  All these programs Deacon Carl describes “Compartamos, the child of World Share, just makes visible God’s miracle upon miracle.”

In 1992, Deacon Carl was assigned by Bishop Brom to St. John the Evangelist Church in the Hillcrest area of San Diego.  In 2002 he was assigned to St. Patrick’s Parish (30th Street, San Diego), and from 2003 to 2007 Dual Assignments to both St. Johns and St. Patrick’s.  

On December 1st, 2007 Bishop Brom assigned Deacon Carl to St. Michael Church San Diego.
