Martha Ministry

Saint Patrick in Arroyo Grande.

ARROYO GRANDE – The Martha Ministry of the parish of Saint Patrick, 501 Fair Oaks Avenue, is seeking volunteers and team leaders.

The aim of the Martha Ministry is to ease the burden of bereaved families by providing a reception for the family members, guests, and friends after a Funeral Mass. Receptions are held in the Saint Patrick Parish Hall.

Martha Ministry volunteers will:

  • Set tables
  • Arrange flowers for the tables
  • Prepare the meal
  • Clean-up

Monthly team leaders will:

  • Be the liaison between the parish and the bereaved family
  • Call for volunteers
  • Inventory and purchase of food for meal preparation
  • Oversee and work with volunteers for the reception

The commitment, as a volunteer, can be anywhere from two to four hours. The commitment for team leaders is more involved, but work with a partner.
