Welcome & Hospitality
Are you: are you happy to be at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass? Are you cheerful that others have come to St. Alphonsus for the corporate worship of God Almighty? If so, YOU are the perfect person to help out!
Bring your whole family! Being a friendly face at the Welcome Desk can easily be done at the Mass you normally attend. 10 minutes before Mass and 10 minutes after is all it takes to make a great impression on visitors and parishioners alike.
Instructions: When you arrive: go right to the Welcome desk. SMILE and tell everyone hello! There will be current information on parish happenings, a QR Code that links to the parish website, and a sheet for collecting information for new parishioners and anyone with questions. The sheets each weekend will be collected and addressed as they require.
Typically, you’ll receive visitors with questions, new people wanting more information and “checking out SAL”, or current parishioners needing information. In any of those cases, share the answer if you know, or capture the information on the list. In addition, please feel free to direct them to the parochial staff person responsible. A “quick reference” is available at the welcome desk.
Other than that, be yourself and share YOUR story. Why do you love SAL? What communities, activities and ministries are you involved in?
Thank you, and together we will be the most welcoming parish in the diocese!
