Creating a welcoming environment

This ministry supports parish events by promoting goodwill and fellowship. Members organize and set up for the various Parish events, such as the monthly Wine and Cheese Social, the Coffee Social and the monthly Evenings of Prayer receptions.

Hospitality Weekends

Hospitality Weekends take place on the first weekend of each month from Sept. – May after the 4 p.m. Mass (Wine & Cheese Social) and the 11:15 a.m. Mass (Coffee Social).

Coordinators for Hospitality Weekends seek parishioners to volunteer to “host” one of the monthly socials. They meet with volunteers to walk them through what needs to be done to ensure a successful event.
