Funeral receptions are offered to the deceased person’s family and held after the funeral Mass usually at 8:30 a.m. Since many funerals are attended by out-of-town relatives and friends this reception is where they can meet and give solace to the deceased person’s relatives. It is a rewarding ministry when you meet so many different people from so many different parts of the United States. All attending are grateful to have the opportunity to be with relatives and friends. If you would like to be a part of this ministry, please call Beverly Smith at 352-787-6354.
