Radical Hospitality Team

We want to make St Josaphat Parish an inviting place where everyone feels welcome and part of a community. We want to help people to deepen their faith and develop their relationship with Jesus, and we want them to feel comfortable talking with others about it. Please help us as a team to create new ways to be more hospitable. Perhaps we have a “Nametag Sunday” or we begin mass by greeting those around us. Bring your fresh ideas and creativity to help us reach our vision of inviting and welcoming everyone so that we can continue to be a “Parish to Come Home To”.
One of the important tasks of disciples of Jesus is to invite others in and help them to know the love of God by how they are treated. Do you enjoy welcoming people, making connections, and helping people feel cared for? If so, we're looking for Radical Hospitality help at St. Josaphat in two ways:
  1. Consider joining our Radical Hospitality Team! This group meets occasionally over Zoom to brainstorm and then carry out new ways of being welcoming to both visitors and current parishioners. If you're an ""ideas"" person, this group is for you! 

  2. Consider joining our Greeting Ministry! Our greeters primarily welcome people at the door before Mass and also assist during Mass with tasks such as the collection. If you are a ""hands on"" person who can communicate kindness through warmth and openness to both parishioners and visitors, consider joining our greeter team!
