Bereavement Ministry - Funeral Receptions
The St. Michael Bereavement Ministry (Funeral Receptions) provides receptions for bereaved families and their guests immediately following funeral services held at St. Michael. Each reception is a personalized celebration of the life of the person who has died. As such, the reception has a strong pastoral dimension and is a natural extension of the funeral service itself. Even the décor conveys a sense of resurrection and the deceased's passage into eternal life. Many of the meals served at these receptions are homemade, which adds to the personal touch that the bereaved families truly appreciate.
If you would like to become involved in this vital ministry or would like more information, please contact Tim Nelligan, Coordinator, at (804) 303-1982 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
