Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will fine rest for your soul.
— Matthew 11:28-29

We are excited to begin building the Hospitality Ministry to St Patrick's Pro-Cathedral!

Our goal is to "joyfully and sincerely welcome each person" coming into our church. By offering a gentle smile and a friendly greeting as parishioners enter and leave our worship space, you embody the essence of what it means to be a Christian, to be 'Christ-like'. We would like each person who comes to St Patrick's to feel that they are genuinely welcome, and that their presence is desired and valued.

We want regulars and newcomers alike to feel welcome, and that they are joining a community that cares about them and desires to know and serve them. Hospitality Ministers serve before Mass greeting arrivals at the door. They also minister at coffee and donuts: it is sometimes a courageous thing for newcomers to attend coffee and donuts, and our hospitality ministers make sure that newcomers are identified, welcomed, integrated and served.
