WELCOMING / HOSPITALITY WEEKEND
Whether you are a long-standing parishioner, newcomer, or visitor to our parish, you are cordially invited to join us for refreshments and fellowship after Mass on October 7 and 8. Coffee and… will be served in the gathering area in the back of the church after the 4:30 pm Saturday, 7:45 am, 9:30 am, and 11:15 am Sunday Masses. Don’t rush off after Mass, but plan to spend a few minutes on these special weekends to meet your fellow parishioners, make new friends, welcome visitors and the newest members of our parish family. If you see a new face, stop and introduce yourself. Enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of juice and a wide variety of delicious treats provided by our goodies angels.
We extend a special invitation to all newly registered parishioners to join us for coffee and fellowship. We would love to meet you and personally welcome you to our parish family. These weekends also provide you with the opportunity to meet us on a casual basis.
Be sure to put our next Coffee and… on your calendar for October 7 and 8. See you then!
