Family to Family Ministry

The Family to Family Ministry provides meals and care packages to families in the parish community during times of need. We provide meals after the birth of a child, during serious illness hospitalization. We have also provided meals during cancer treatments and following an unexpected death. The purpose of this ministry is to provide support from one family to another during both the sorrows and joys of family life. If you would like to join this ministry or know someone who would benefit from a set of meals or a care package contact Lindy Meyer.
