Repast Ministry


“Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” ( Matthew 5:4)


The Repast Ministry is committed to providing comfort and peace to families after the funeral and interment of their loved one. The ministry reaches out to families of deceased registered parishioners by preparing a meal served in the comfortable surroundings of The Rosemont Room, allowing time for relaxation and fellowship with others.

Membership: The Repast Ministry of St. Joseph Catholic Church is composed of parishioners who lovingly volunteer their time to serve others. The ministry is divided into three teams, each serving in rotating order. If you would like to join this group of spiritual men and women, please contact the coordinator or a team leader.

Training: Each member must be certified as a Food Service Manager by The Prince George’s Health Department, Division of Environmental Health. The coordinator will arrange for training.
