When you ask a member of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton parish what attracted them to the parish, you will probably hear statements such as, “Everyone was so friendly”, “I felt at home here,” and “I felt so welcomed.” The Welcome Ministry remains committed to making sure these perceptions and feelings among newcomers and long-term parishioners continue.

The mission of the Welcome Ministry is:
To facilitate and be instrumental in establishing personal contact with new members or visitors to welcome and bring them into the parish and to provide a means for newcomers to become involved in the life of the parish.”

As a ministry, we believe the faith community at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton remains vibrant when visitors find a warm, open atmosphere and a personal introduction to the life of the parish and other parishioners.

The Welcome Ministry pursues its mission in a variety of ways such as

    • Providing Welcome packets
    • Conducting quarterly brunches for new parishioners
    • Contacting and following up with new parishioners
    • Serving as greeters at masses

The Welcome Ministry is important to the spiritual community of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, and serving on the ministry creates fellowship and fun.
