Welcomers

Welcomers serve as the first contact with people coming in to church. They also welcome new parishioners into the church and at home.

Contact Christine Trebicka at Saturday evening Mass or Barbara Parker at Sunday morning Mass.

Teas after Mass

Tea and coffee is served in the hall after Sunday morning Mass. It is an occasion for old and new parishioners to meet.

Several times a year there is a shared lunch in addition to the usual refreshments.
