Reception Committee Print


At. St. Andrew's Cathedral, we host a number of receptions, including lunch receptions for important feast days, larger receptions for special Liturgical celebrations and funeral receptions, .  These receptions are an important opportunity to foster and promote community within our congregation in order to build a stronger church.

Funeral receptions offer mourners a chance to spend time together, remember the person who died, and reconnect. People need and want to say their goodbyes and show support to the family because they too feel a loss. Grief can be so overwhelming that having a reception allows the family to feel that support in a stress-free environment.

It takes many willing hands to stage these fellowship opportunities for our church family and visitors.  The Reception Committee is looking for volunteers to help with all aspects of a daytime or evening event, such as hosting, food prep, set up and clean up.   If you'd like to offer your time & talents (no experience necessary!), please contact the parish office at 250-388-5571 or by email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
