The funeral ministry offers an opportunity for family and friends to share a meal and gather together following the funeral of a loved one. The first organizational meeting, under the leadership of Ellen Voltolini, was held May 4,2003, eventually leading to the first luncheon August 14, 2003.
WHO WE ARE/ WHAT WE DO:
The funeral ministry is a volunteer group responsible for the preparation and serving of a funeral luncheon for the families of a deceased parishioner. This service is available to the families of parishioners at no charge. Donations and occasional fundraisers, example bake sales, are held to raise funds to support this ministry.
The Our Lady of Peace Funeral Ministry provides for parishioners only and has a set menu. There are three phone trees to coordinate the donation of hot casseroles, cold casseroles, and desserts. Parishioners volunteer for one of the above, and names are rotated as luncheons progress throughout the year. There are also set-up, serve, and clean-up committees. Luncheons are served in the lower level of the church, and the limit for those being served is 125. If parishioners desire a catered lunch from outside the church the members of the Funeral Ministry do not help serve.
Volunteers are welcome.
