The Welcoming Committee is comprised of parish volunteers called "Ambassadors" that assist in welcoming new members of the parish in making them feel at home with the Saint Maria Goretti Family. The Welcoming Committee reports to the Pastor.
The committee contacts each new parishioner after receiving the New Parishioner form from the Parish Office. The committee discusses ministries selections on the forms, of if not on the form, what ministries the parishioner may be interested in. The name of the ministry leader is shared with the parishioner who should hear from them shortly after the call or meeting. The volunteer in turn contacts the ministry leader, informing them of the new parishioner desire to participate in the ministry. A follow up email is also sent to the Ministry contact.
The committee is also responsible for the having volunteers at the New Parishioner Welcoming Table each month to greet the new parishioners who will receive a small gift.
