Hospitality Ministry

“Do not neglect hospitality, for through it some have unknowingly entertained angels.” (Hebrews 13:2)



The mission of the SFC Ministry of Hospitality is to provide and promote a welcoming environment of love, acceptance, support, and comfort within the parish community.


  • To enhance the faith of the parish community, strengthen attendance at Mass, and provide avenues for involvement in parish ministries, organizations, and activities.
  • To reach out to new parishioners, provide hospitality, and support the parish community members.
  • To create and sustain programs to make the parish a welcoming community.
  • To create and implement a spiritual outreach program to help welcome back people to the Church, especially inactive parishioners.


  • Active parishioners willing to share their gifts of time and talent in planning and implementing the committee’s goals.
  • Members should be available for monthly or other required meetings when needed.
  • Members should be available to attend events and programs the committee organizes.
  • Members should be willing to recruit volunteers to help out in the hospitality programs.

The committee helps to organize these programs:

  • Periodic events to welcome new parishioners.
  • Hosting periodic events to create opportunities for parishioners to share fellowship and socialize after Mass and other occasions.
  • Assistance to parishioners who are going through an illness or injury and may need temporary help with a meal or a ride.
  • Visiting or sending cards to those who are ill or homebound for some other reason.
  • Working with other Parish Ministries when help is needed with food or refreshments at one of their events.
  • Supporting the ushers and greeters on various duties, which allow the Masses to flow smoothly and parishioners to have a positive and prayerful experience.
