  • What we can offer your family

 A gathering of family and friends after a funeral gives everyone an opportunity to spend time together sharing memories and comfort. Martha's Table Ministry provides a funeral reception for parishioners of St. Andrew. The ministry is administered by a committee of volunteer members of the parish and is open to anyone in the parish to participate with their donation of time, talent and/or food. 

Receptions are held immediately following the Funeral Mass or Memorial Service in the Family Center.  Families should first speak with Fr. Juan Anzora about their needs. If a reception is desired, the family will be contacted by one of our ministry co-chairs. 

Monetary donations from the family are not necessary but are gratefully accepted and enable Martha's Table Ministry to continue to offer funeral receptions. If you would like to make a donation, you may make a check payable to St. Andrew Catholic Church with "Martha's Table" in the memo section.

  • We provide...
Martha's Table Ministry provides ham and/or turkey sandwiches, pasta salad, green salad, fruit salad, baked goods, coffee, tea, water, and lemonade free of charge to families. Committee members also take care of all set up and clean up responsibilities.
  • Other options
Families wishing to do so may order additional food at your own expense. Upon request, our committee can offer vendor suggestions.
