This volunteer ministry of the parish coordinates the provision of meals to parish families experiencing a life crisis such as an illness or accident, the loss of a loved one, or other situation. Receiving a meal several times a week can alleviate some of the stress that these families are facing. If you know of a parishioner or parish family in need of such help, please contact Leann Kaufenberg, Pastoral Minister/Faith Community Nurse at 379-1266. Jackie Valerius, the program coordinator, creates a meal calendar on the https://www.carecalendar.org. website. The individual or family is assigned a calendar id and security code that allows the food donor to access the family’s meal calendar on the CareCalendar website.
Family meal slips with sign-up instructions can be found on the church bulletin boards. Anyone can offer to make or purchase a meal for the family. Thanks to all people who participate in this ministry. More meal donors are needed to sustain this ministry.
