bereavementThis ministry provides much needed assistance to our fellow parishioners in cases of illness of hardship or loss due to death.  This ministry is divided into two groups.  One group coordinates the "Funeral Luncheon Program."  This service provides parishioners with a luncheon in our Parish Hall following a funeral. 

The other section of Helping Hands provides services such as (1) visiting all ill parishioner, (2) preparing meals for those temporarily incapacitated, (3) shopping for the home-bound, (4) cleaning house, (5) providing transportation to the doctor, hospital or church, and (6) yard and/or repair work for those incapacitated.  We all thankful to the caring members of Helping Hands.
