The welcoming ministry is a group of people who share in the responsibility of visiting the new parishioners who newly register with St. Francis Parish.
Activities & Events:
The new parishioners are visited at a mutually agreed location, possibly at their home, a coffee shop or before or after mass. We present them with a welcoming gift from the parish, and provide information on the activities of the church. The visit will give the new parishioners a chance to ask any question about the parish and
In addition, three times a year a Meet and Greet event is held at St Francis with the Welcoming Team and the Pastor of the church. This gives the new members a chance to meet with our Priest and give them a chance to introduce themselves to him.
Anyone who is comfortable making phone calls and willing to meet with newly registered members. Time needed for each visit depends on you.
This is a great way to meet new people and make new friends. It also gives new members a way to feel more comfortable in their newly chosen parish.
