Welcome to the Parish!

Did you notice the new Welcome Table in the atrium at Easter? Have you had a chance to stop by to look at some of the resources or to talk to a volunteer host? Over the next several weeks/summer we hope to develop this resource for everyone’s use. Perhaps you’re new to the parish or returning to church after several years. Maybe you need someone to point you toward the right staff member/ministry or you might have a question about an event. Need help finding the Lewis Room or the office? Think of the Welcome Table as a concierge service, we’ll try to answer questions and get you settled here at the parish.

This will work best when we have built a dedicated crew of outgoing joyful hosts to staff the Welcome table for each mass. Think you might have that smile? Could you help periodically? You don’t need to be an expert, we’ll have all the resources. What you do need to be is joyful and ready to celebrate each person’s decision to connect with the parish on their faith journey. Stop by the table and talk to a volunteer host or connect with Janet Schirripa, Lay Ministry Support Coordinator at 919-865-5704 jschirripa@saintraphael.org.
