Funeral Reception

'I have come, not to be served, but to serve'.

This committee of volunteer men and women assist the family of the deceased by providing refreshments or a luncheon in a place of comfort, following the Funeral Mass or Memorial service. People need and want to say their goodbyes and show support to the family because they too feel a loss. Grief can be so overwhelming that having a reception in the parish hall allows the family to feel that support in a stress-free environment. There is a minimal cost to the family for this service. As a volunteer, you can choose from 4 work-area groups, each requiring about a 2 hour time commitment per funeral.
