Funeral Support Ministry

If you are interested in joining our Funeral Support Ministry to help set-up, serve or clean-up at Funeral Receptions, please email

If you would like to be on the list to help provide food (salad, side dish or dessert), please email Requests will be sent via email as they come in to the Parish Office.

We offer prayer and our condolences to all those dealing with the loss of loved ones. Funeral arrangements are coordinated with the Parish through the Mortuary. After meeting with the Mortuary, family members are asked to contact one of our St. Simon Parish Priests to discuss details and make arrangements for any services that will be overseen by St. Simon.

A reception after a funeral Mass or memorial service at St. Simon may be available for parishioners depending on the facilities availability. A staff member or volunteer will contact the family for their preferences which we will do our best to accommodate during this difficult time.

If available, St Simon parishioner volunteers will help set up for the reception. Some food may be provided by our Helping Hands volunteers and the rest is to be provided or catered by the family including paper goods, drinks, and other food items.

If you wish to share your talents to help support a grieving family, please join the Funeral Reception ministry by contacting the Parish Office at 650-880-1401 or email
