Category: Parish News,

How many of you sit in about the same pew at the same Mass every Sunday?  I am willing to bet it is the majority of us.  Now, how many people see the same people in the pews next to them, behind them, or maybe in front of them each week?  First of all, good job coming to Mass each week!

The big question is, how many of those people do you know by name? Unfortunately, for the majority of parishioners, the answer would be, “very few.”

The OLH Evangelization Committee has begun a Hospitality Committee to change that. We want people to get to know each other, along with making new parishioners and visitors feel welcome.

We want to have Greeters at each Mass, form a Welcoming Team, and offer hospitality-related activities, so that we may increase our Mass attendance.

To do this, we need help.  We are looking for friendly, creative people that can help us put these plans into action.  Your time commitment could be as little as 15 minutes before Mass once a month as a Greeter, or maybe you are someone who loves to help organize events.
