Hospitality Ministers

"Every person is Jesus in disguise." - Mother Theresa

St. John the Baptist Catholic Church is vibrant parish community is blessed with many active ministries and volunteers who do so much to foster a sense of hospitality in all that we do.  And yet, there is always an opportunity to do more.

The mission statement of our Hospitality Ministry is “to reach out in dedicated service with a welcoming spirit of inclusion to all of our brothers and sisters in Christ.”

To actuate this mission, Hospitality Greeters at all weekend liturgies extend a genuine and warm welcome to all who visit our community. 

Hospitality is important because it’s the first thing that either happens or does not happen when people walk through our church doors. First impressions are lasting impressions, so we need to “do it right” the first time.  We must conduct ourselves in such a manner that we make our visitors feel that they, too, are part of the Mystical Body of Christ, and make them feel welcome and an integral part of our communal worship.

And when you come right down to the essence of what being a disciple of Jesus Christ is all about, you come to the inevitable conclusion that WE ARE ALL Ministers of Hospitality, every day of our lives, wherever we go.To assist in this ministry, contact Maggie Howard at 303-776-0737, ext. 112 or e-mail maggieh@johnthebaptist.org.
