Meal Ministry

Meal Program

This outreach of the parish coordinates the provision of meals to parish families experiencing a life crisis such as an illness or accident, the loss of a loved one, or other situation. Receiving a meal several times a week can alleviate some of the stress that these families are facing. If you know of a parishioner or parish family in need of such help, please contact Deacon Bert Bliss at 651-379-1266. He will create a Volunteer Meal Sign Up on the  website. The individual or family is assigned a calendar id and security code that allows the food donor to access the family’s calendar on the CareCalendar website.


Instruction lists can be found on the ramp bulletin board. Contact the parish office or Deacon Bert Bliss to get the codes. Anyone can offer to make a meal for the family. Thanks to all people who have participated in this ministry. If you have questions or would like more information, contact Deacon Bert Bliss, Pastoral Minister.
