Manna Ministry is a group of volunteers whose mission is to bring comfort and assistance to family and friends of deceased parishioners by organizing receptions at the church after funerals. Our caring members serve at the receptions, bring prepared food, or call for food donations. We reach out to parish organizations to provide food donations when the reception honors one of their members. Donated food is purchased or prepared at home. Additionally, Manna Ministry hosts a reception after the annual All Souls’ Day service for families of parishioners who have died in the past year.
We have no regular meetings. New members receive on-the-job training from friendly and helpful team members. Arrangements for a reception are made through the Sacramental Coordinator. If you are interested in serving our parish community by volunteering to bring food or by helping to host receptions, contact Patricia Patton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
