Welcoming Committee

Welcome Committee members extend a warm welcome and friendship to new parishioners by hosting 5 – 6 Welcome Receptions each year. The duties involved are set up/clean up and providing food and beverages. We are also responsible for displaying our new parishioner’s pictures in the vestibule of the Spirituality Center. Throughout the year assistance is needed in assembling Welcome Folders that are given to the new Parishioners at the Receptions and also made available in the Spirituality Center’s vestibule.
