SPOTLIGHT ON: Funeral Lunches

After the death of a parishioner, the parish office contacts the family and offers to provide food for the family and guests following the service. The food, typically a lunch, is served in the Gathering Space following the funeral or memorial service. The parish provides the meats, bread, coffee, punch, plates, cups and eating utensils. Volunteers participating in this ministry are contacted and asked to provide salads, desserts, and relish plates. Volunteers also have the opportunity to serve the food and clean up following the event. This ministry is open to youth through adult volunteers. Anyone interested in assisting with Funeral Lunches is encouraged to contact the parish office at 946-1675 for more information.
