|A typical day in this ministry:||
We have callers that will contact workers for each funeral. The set up people will meet at 8:30 to set up and dress tables. The servers will meet at 10:30 to prepare and serve the food. We do cater the hot dishes, and summer menus, but there are other items to prepare. The clean-up people will meet at 12:30 to clear tables, do dishes and other things to get the kitchen back in order. These times may change depending on funeral sizes.
|Is there more than one way to volunteer?||
Other opportunities could be taking laundry home, and a prayer line for our parish members that have passed on.
