The Hospitality / Welcome

Ministry

The Hospitality / Welcome Ministry is currently looking for volunteers who would be interested in phoning new parishioners to welcome them into our faith community and explain our “Welcome” events. These calls are usually limited to fewer than 5 families per caller once a month and entitle the caller to attend the Welcome Dinners that we facilitate to introduce our new folks to the some of our more established parishioners. “When I was a stranger, you welcomed me.” (Matthew 25:35)

We also LOVE new parishioners and hold quarterly “Welcome Dinners” specifically those new to IHM. See our bulletin for details on the date for the next upcoming Welcome Dinner. Thank you for joining us this weekend! If you’re not yet registered, please call the parish office at 634-4154 and ask for Ana. She will be happy to mail you a registration form. See you soon!

ATTENTION!!!/ATENCION!!!

Over the past few months many of you have received emails from the priests requesting you to either respond for help or supply some form of financial assistance. These emails are called spooling and are done by unknown sources to cause you to respond or send financial assistance to them. The priests will NEVER ask you to do this. When you receive these emails the best thing for you to do is delete them immediately and do not respond in any way. +++++ En los últimos meses, muchos de ustedes han recibido correos electrónicos de los sacerdotes pidiéndoles que respondan para ayudar o pidiendo alguna forma de ayuda financiera. Estos correos son llamados ENCANILLAR y son hechos por fuentes desconocidas para hacer que usted responda o envie el ayudo financiero a ellos. Los sacerdotes NUNCA le pedirán que haga esto. Cuando reciba estos correos electronicos, lo mejor que puede hacer es eliminarlos inmediatamente y no responder de ninguna manera.
