Funeral Luncheon Ministry

Volunteers are needed to serve as Callers, Servers, Crew Chiefs and Food Donors to provide support to the families and loved ones of parishioners whose Funerals we celebrate at Transfiguration.

Commitment (from home): 1-2 hours per Funeral

Description: Once you receive word that a Funeral has come in, the coordinator calls 3-4 of the Funeral food callers so that they can call parishioners to request salads/desserts. Then the coordinator calls for 4-6 food servers/workers for the Funeral. Finally, the coordinator calls Knowlans Deli to order meat and rolls for the lunch. He/she reports back to the Parish Office once everything is complete.

This opportunity includes assisting our lead volunteers with seasonal decorations as well as watering plants and keeping the Church, Chapel and Gathering Space looking its best.

Commitment: 2 hours, 1x every 4 weeks
