Funeral Ministry

Receptions after Funeral Masses held in St. Anthony Church are sometimes held in our beautiful Parish Memorial Center.

This is an extension of the Bereavement Committee in helping the family going through grief.  In preparing the food and place for the reception is one less concern that a grieving family has to shoulder.  The deceased’s family makes provisions for the main entré (perhaps meat and cheese platters or lasagna) and volunteer parishioners provide desserts and salads.  The parish also has volunteers in the kitchen during the funeral to make sure all of the food and beverages are ready by the end of the liturgy. If you would like to volunteer to provide food, or if you would like to work in the kitchen for this ministry, please call the parish office.
