Hospitality Ministry

The Mission of the Hospitality Ministry is to encourage fellowship among our Parishioners, strengthen our community and make our church a welcoming place for all members and visitors. We are called by the Gospel’s message to “welcome the stranger” and to follow Pope Francis’ example to welcome others into our Parish community.


We plan and host special events for all our Parishioners. Hospitality Ministry Events include; New Parishioner Welcome Receptions, Coffee & Refreshments after Mass, the Multicultural Potluck Dinner, the Family Movie Night and the Speakers’ Series.


All Parishioners are welcome to join the Hospitality Ministry. We have four Ministry meetings a year and Event subcommittees meet as needed. There is something for everyone with the Hospitality Ministry. You can volunteer to assist at an event or work ‘behind the scenes’ with a donation or a special project.


The Hospitality Ministry Leadership is Barbara Ochalski, Co-Chair and Madeline “Maddy” Svirskas, Co-Chair.
