Funeral Luncheon Ministry


Mission: To assist grieving members of the parish community, plan and serve a post-funeral luncheon either at St. Joseph or Nativity’s social hall. Often after the Mass and burial, families choose to come together to share a meal and spend time remembering the person who died in a more casual setting. Together with the parish staff, this ministry not only provides information of area caterers, menus and venues to help in the decision making process, but also provides volunteers to help coordinate and serve the luncheon.

Talents: A willingness to help set-up, serve, clean up, provide baked goods or side dishes when requested.

Time: Two hours on the day of the funeral and can select any or all of set up, serve and clean up.
