The Bereavement Committee is an expression of sympathy from St. Matthew Parish when a parishioner has a death in their immediate family. We provide food for the family after the funeral service.
We are a volunteer group, from coordinator to all food preparation. We have a large group of people who cook so you will not be called on for every funeral. We have a list of suggestions for easy foods to fix, or purchase, if you are “out of time” or just do not feel like cooking this time but you still want to help.
There is so much consolation for the family in this act of caring!
