Ministers to families who have just experienced the death of a loved one by providing a meal after the internment. Volunteers are called on a rotating basis and may donate a dish (dessert, side or salad) which will then be served at the luncheon. Or, volunteers may assist on one of four teams who set up, serve, and clean up after lunch on a rotating basis.
Persons on this team help serve coffee and donuts after the 9:00 or 11:00 am masses on the first and third Sundays, October-May. Volunteers usually serve not more than twice a year.
