Parishioners who wish to have a reception following their loved one’s funeral or memorial Mass may use the Parish Hall and the service of our Martha Ministry volunteers. Martha ministry provides coordination and hosting, set up and clean up of coffee and cold beverages, baked goods, table linens, flowers and candles as desired. A meal may also be provided or catered. The Martha Ministry coordinator can prove resource suggestions and advise on options. Martha Ministry can be requested when you schedule the time of the funeral with the funeral director or when you meet with staff to prepare the funeral liturgy. Martha Ministry volunteers are urgently needed. Call Ellie Van Tol at 941-485-6703 to see where you can help. Call Maggie Buonarosa at 941-484-0159 to make arrangements for a reception.
