Saturday Evening/Sunday Morning Hospitality Ministry
The most important work of hospitality in our parish is on Sunday morning when the majority of our brothers and sisters in Christ attempt to encounter our Lord. Sunday Morning Hospitality is an oppurtunity for households-a unit consisting of a single person, a married couple, a married couple with children, or grandparents with grandchildren-to volunteer to welcome and serve those coming to Sunday Mass. The work consists of arriving early to check over the to welcome people into church and stay after to tidy things up to keep our church looking nice for all who come to worship here.
