Funerals & Cemetery

Funeral Reception Ministry

The mission of the Funeral Reception Ministry is the combined service of Hospitality and Pastoral Care Ministries that helps support families at the time of death of a loved one. The ministry provides a reception following funeral services at the family’s request.

Funeral Receptions

St. James Parish Community strives to support you during this difficult time. Funeral receptions offer guests and family members a chance to spend time together and remember the person who passed.

As part of our ministry, we offer brunch or lunch buffet receptions after services. These receptions are made possible through the generosity of our parishioners who volunteer their time and talents, however some costs are incurred. Donations to offset any costs are gratefully accepted.

For further information or to request a reception, please contact Committee Chair:
