Funeral Luncheons – Anglo

 

It is the custom of the Parish to help provide service for luncheons after the funerals of parishioners or their loved ones.  Luncheons are held in the Parish Center or in Burns Hall depending on availability.

On average six or more individuals are assigned to each luncheon, averaging out serving about three times each year.  Service includes setting tables, serving coffee, kitchen work, and cleaning up.

Another group of parishioners are available to provide salads and desserts for these luncheons as needed.

 

Funeral Luncheons – Hispanic

Our Hispanic parishioners help to serve the funerals of Hispanic parishioners or their loved ones.  Luncheons are held in the Parish Center or in Burns Hall, depending on availability.

Approximately six persons are assigned to each luncheon, which averages out to serving about three times each year.  Service includes setting tables, serving coffee, kitchen work, and cleaning up.

Since these luncheons are primarily for our Hispanic parishioners, ethnic items are served.  Additionally, another group of parishioners are available to provide salads and desserts as needed.
