The opportunity to help the chairperson set up for and serve a bereaved family dinner after a funeral or memorial service; bring a dish to serve a designated number of people (meat and rolls to be furnished the UMW); and /or help serve and clean up.
Ministry of Visitation - Chaplain Ralph Donohue (787-1829)
Volunteer opportunites to reach out to our congregation with compassion in various ways. We call on members in hospitals, nursing & rehabilitation centers, shut-ins and homebounds to give encouragement, company, prayer and a lot of listening.
There is also an opportunity to deliver flowers from the Sunday's Chancel to any of the above, as well as CD's of the Sunday service.
You may team up or go alone. If you have a real concern for others, this ministry could be for you.
These are handmade by our parishoners for those who are hospitalized or homebound or anyone needing a touch of God's love in their life. These shawls are dedicated in church the second Sunday of each month.
