By attending Mass on Sundays and the Holy Days of Obligation, we get to join with a community of believers to worship God. Listening to the teachings of Jesus, receiving Holy Communion, and being a part of a community are all things that help strengthen our faith.
The Spirit of God calls us to gather and empowers us to mutual compassion. In welcoming all who respond to the divine invitation, the Minister of Welcome becomes the hand of God through which the Spirit embraces the sons and daughters of the Kingdom of God and molds them into the one Body of Christ. Those involved in this ministry are asked to bring to it humility, warmth, and personal presence, as well as a gift for outreach.
