Hospice Bereavement Bread

A loaf of sweet bread is delivered to each Hospice family approximately 2-3 weeks after a client’s death. This kind gesture shows our hospice families that people in the community care about them and their loss.


Volunteer bakers from Corpus Christi help to make this program possible by donating hundreds of loaves of bread each year. Loaves of sweet bread are home baked, wrapped unsliced, and delivered to Corpus Christi. A notice for this delivery is placed monthly in the Corpus Christi church bulletin. Additional bakers are always needed.


If you are interested in baking bread to support this special program or for more information, please contact the parish secretary, Diane McCarty at 717-264-6317 or at dmccarty@corpuschristichbg.org.
