Parish Ministry Volunteers Needed

Our parish Funeral Ministry is seeking additional volunteers to assist with the preparation of a portion of the Mercy Meal presented to the family between the funeral viewings.  Each Mercy Meal requires five to six volunteers to provide this loving gift. 

Volunteers are not asked to contribute the entire meal but just one item.  The volunteer determines what item they would like to contribute.  All volunteers are called, as needed, on a rotating schedule by the funeral planner.  This is a tremendous opportunity for evangelization to help our parish grow and prosper.  If you are interested in becoming a contributing volunteer, please contact Bill Burdett at 412-260-4621 or Thank you!
