The Funeral Luncheon Ministry of St. Mary Immaculate Parish ministers to parish families who have experienced a death. A funeral luncheon is offered to each family who contacts the Parish for funeral arrangements. Our luncheons include two main dishes of chicken and beef at a minimal cost to the family. Each family’s luncheon is then also gifted with assorted side dishes and desserts graciously provided by our parishioners.

The opportunities to serve within this ministry are many and varied. We need set-up and clean-up help, those willing to make phone calls from a call list and those who would like to “gift” a parish family with a baked dish, salad or dessert on an occasional basis by placing their name on our call list.
