Dear Volunteer for the Funeral Reception Ministry,

Welcome! Thank you for volunteering to support this ministry to help our families by offering a reception as a place for families and friends to gather for fellowship; to share, reminisce and remember the life of their loved one and their happy times together. Click on the links below for recipes.

If you would like to donate food, but don’t have time to cook, Costco has an assortment of frozen savories: pigs in pastry, mini-quiches, filled puff pastries, etc.  Boxes contain 30, 48, 72 and 100 pieces. The boxes should be dropped off the day before, marked for Funeral Reception, date of reception and name of donor and placed in the Kenny Hall kitchen refrigerator for the Hospitality Committee to heat the day of the reception.
