The next Parish Social Life Committee meeting will be held Friday, September 1st, at 6:30 PM in the Hughes Center.
Why do we need this committee?
Humanity needs socialization. This group will work to organize, promote and maintain community fellowship by way of events, activities and programs. These functions will lead to improved networking and Evangelization.
The goals of the Hospitality Committee are 1.) to build and support the parish community by bringing people together 2.) to form bonds and develop a deeper spiritual knowledge with other parishioners 3.) to establish and maintain a welcoming environment of comfort and relaxation for our parishioners and guests.
What is our strategy?
As committee members, we should have Vision. We must open our eyes, be mindful to the needs of the parish community. Based on our observations, we need to develop Plans. Present ideas that address these needs. As a committee, we must be able to Coordinate these plans and Produce an end product.
