The Caring Committee is a ministry made up of parish volunteers who graciously give the gift of their time and talent to provide family and friends a complimentary luncheon following the funeral of a loved one. These parish volunteers coordinate the luncheon as well as prepare a covered dish meal.
This luncheon is the combined effort of our entire Church family. Donations are accepted and may be directed to the Parish Office. Please contact church office at 770-887-9861 or Libby McDowell at E-mail Caring Committee to volunteer.
