For as Christ’s sufferings overflow to us, so through Christ does our encouragement also overflow.
–2 Corinthians 1:5
Losing a loved one is a very traumatic experience. Gathering for a meal can help a decedent’s family through their time of grief. In conjunction with a funeral or memorial service held at the Parish of the Assumption, at the request of the family, our Mercy Meal Ministry will help plan, organize and host a reception for the family and friends who have gathered to remember and celebrate the life of deceased.
Often families do not have a place to gather that will accommodate the number of people who might wish to show their loving support.
If you are interested in serving on the Mercy Meal Ministry, please contact us so that we can assist you in becoming an active part of this corporal work of mercy.
