New Parishioner Welcome Ministry
The New Parishioner Welcome Ministry organizes and facilitates twice monthly gatherings for those folks beginning the process of joining our church. These casual meetings provide an opportunity for soon-to-be new parishioners to learn more about St. Francis Xavier, tour the facility, ask questions, receive the necessary registration forms, and, most importantly, meet other new families doing the same. The ministry team members work closely with parish staff to accommodate the needs of incoming parishioners. WELCOME is at the heart of this ministry!
Ministers needed to: greet new people, show a PowerPoint with additional discussion, provide tours
Time required: Ministers are organized into teams that serve two hours, monthly or every other month.
