The Bethany Ministry is comprised of teams of volunteers who offer their service of providing food around funeral arrangements. Members try to provide a sense of calm and support of community during the loss of a loved one. In a parishioner’s time of grieving, the Bethany Ministry is able to take the stress off the family’s shoulders in one small area with feeding guests at the wake or funeral.
As a continuation of the Bethany Ministry, the Liaison Team also provides follow up contact with the family. This team provides cards, prayers, phone calls along with a shoulder to cry on or an ear to listen if needed.
The funeral homes contact Holy Cross when one of our parishioners has a death in their family, then the Bethany Ministry is contacted by Teri Broussard, the Parish Facilitator for Holy Cross. For more information you may contact her by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call the church office at 337-984-9636, ext. 1003.
If you are a parishioner and interested in joining the Bethany Ministry contact Lead Liaison Tracy Laurent at 337-962-7303.
