This ministry provides a service to our parish families that they appreciate during one of their greatest times of need.
There are three groups within the Mary Queen of Peace parish responsible for serving funeral luncheons following a funeral at our parish. Each group consists of 15 to 20 people. The groups rotate with each funeral and serve approximately 3 to 5 funerals per year. The time commitment for each funeral can be up to 5 hours. Those hours consist of setting up, preparing and serving the food along with clean up. The food served at the luncheon is purchased locally on behalf of the deceased’s family. Families do not bring food from home.
