Caring & Sharing

Skip Navigation LinksHome > Ministries & Organizations > A - C > Caring & Sharing

One of the many ministries at St. Mark's is known as Caring & Sharing. The name is very appropriate. Because of the community it serves, not many of our parishioners are aware of what this ministry is all about until the need arises. This ministry serves the community of St. Mark's by providing a meal for family and friends on the day of a funeral of a deceased member.

This ministry began as a committee of the Altar Society when St. Mark's was a new parish. As the parish grew, so did this committee. Caring & Sharing is now a parish-wide ministry as part of the Grief Ministry team.

The meals are usually served in the Shalom Room located in the community center. This is a team effort with volunteers--our Kitchen Team Angels--who work in the kitchen to prepare the food. Other volunteers donate some of the food, while others simply make a financial contribution that helps with the purchase of the items to make the sandwiches. Currently, our lists of volunteers to donate food are called one to two times per year (depending on the needs of the parish).

How Can I Help?

We are always looking for new faces. There are no dues nor meetings, just the privilege to be of service when needed.  If you would like to be a part of this special ministry by providing food, helping in the kitchen or making a financial contribution, please call Jan Williams at (210) 274-6275.
