The St. Vincent de Paul Society is a world-wide organization of Catholic men and women volunteering to help those in need – spiritually, economically, and emotionally. The St. Mary Conference has been helping people in the Woodstock area since 2003.
Funerals are a time where family and friends gather for prayer and to express their support for one another at the death of their loved one. In addition to the funeral and burial, St. Mary's is happy to assist your family with a funeral luncheon in our St. Joseph Center Basement. This hall has easy access by stairs or elevator. The cost will be $8.00 per person which includes choices of sandwich food such as cold meats, cheeses, breads and salads; or a hot buffet which includes a choice of chicken, potato salad, coleslaw, garden or fruit salad; or a hot buffet with Italian beef, mostaccioli, bread and garden salad. Also, drinks and desserts are provided. Volunteers from our parish will organize, serve and clean up after this luncheon.
Payment: After the luncheon you will be billed by St. Mary Parish for the number of meals you requested ahead of time.
Also if you are willing to be a part of our Funeral Luncheon Ministry and help with set up, serving, or preparing food please also contact JoAnne Sieck at the parish office.
