Helping Hands

Praying and Remembering the Deceased through our presence to one another.

Funeral Reception Ministry

This ministry assists and ministers to the grieving family members and their friends by  setting up, serving and cleaning up the hall  so that they may have a space to come together and be nourished by one another's presence and with the food that is served.  While this ministry is certainly a Martha (cf. Luke 10: 38 - 42) oriented ministry, the members of this group also include the deceased and the  grieving families in their private and personal prayers. 


The food that is served  in the reception is provided by the family of the deceased; water and coffee drinks are provided by this ministry.

If interested to join this group, please call the parish office.

Parish office telephone number is (707) 448-2390.
