Hospitality  & Bereavement

Then Nehemiah said to the people, “Go your way, eat the fat and drink sweet wine and send portions of them  to those for whom nothing is prepared.”  (Neh. 8:10)

The Hospitality Ministry provides opportunities for the parish to gather together, such as providing coffee and pastries following the 9:30 am Sunday Mass during the school year.  From time to time, the Hospitality Ministry also hosts brunches and suppers to mark particular events on the parish calendar.  Refreshments are also offered at Pastor’s Classes and Bible studies through help of parish members.

The Bereavement Committee provides luncheons (upon request) for families and friends following a funeral Mass.   A dedicated team of volunteers offers time and talent to host the bereavement meals.   

Please contact Kerri Stanley at 603.623.2604 or secretary@saint-raphael-parish.com to request a bereavement luncheon to be held following a funeral Mass, or if you would like to become part of this ministry committee. 

Please contact Dorene Turner at 647-2283 or foodpantry@saint-raphael-parish.com f you are interested in helping with the Hospitality Ministry team.
