New Member Support Team


As disciples we are called to see Christ in others and to be Christ for others.  The roots of hospitality are central to the Christian life.


“For I was a stranger and you made me Welcome”       Matt. 25:35



Ministering to--welcoming on a personal level--those who join our parish family.  


  • Attend and assist staff with New Member Orientation meetings


  • Assist with follow-up outreach to new members as they acclimate into our faith community


  • Personally contact new members one week after  attending the New Member Orientation meeting


  • Inquire if they have any questions or need clarification on any of the material presented to them that evening


  • Inquire if they had an opportunity to complete and submit their time and talent forms


  • Invite them to an upcoming Knights of Columbus breakfast or some other parish social event.  Offer to meet them at the event if they would like.


  • Occasionally for next six months contact them to invite them to join a social event, help in some way, etc., based on interests.
