Ministries of Service

Bereavement Ministry (Ministry of Embrace) 

Mary Our Queen’s Ministry of EMBRACE is comprised of fellow parishioners who have also, through death, suffered the loss of a loved one.  We are here to offer hope during the grief journey, and to reach out during this difficult time.  Care and support are offered through our prayers, presence at funerals, Memorial Crosses, the Annual Mass of Remembrance, Christmas Memory Tree and grief support materials and resources.

Communion to the Homebound

Holy Communion is brought to the homebound for short or long term.  A priest will visit them on or near the First Friday as well.  This is a very rewarding ministry for EMHCs, even as a substitute. If you would like receive Communion or volunteer to distribute communion, please call us.

This ministry cooks the evening meal for our parish priests on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings. The priests are well fed, very pleased, and we are saving the parish a great deal of money.
