Meals for Priest Ministry
We minister to the priests of the parish by providing them with dinners to help them feel like welcome
members of our St Cletus community. Just as they provide us with spiritual nourishment at Mass, we
strive to provide them with physical nourishment, in order to give them the strength they need to
continue to serve our parish family day in and day out. We may not be preparing fancy gourmet dishes,
but we are simply making sure that our parish priests have a warm dinner after a long day. The dinners
are so appreciated by our priests. This is a great way to show our appreciation for their devotion to our
We do not have regular meetings. Instead, we provide dinners three evenings each week for our parish
priests: Sunday, Tuesday, and Friday. Our goal is to maintain a large enough roster of volunteers, in
order that each volunteer is only responsible for providing one meal once every two months.
Volunteers utilize our Meal Train website to sign up for the dates that work best for them throughout
the year. We also ask that our volunteers deliver the dinner they prepare to the rectory.
