The Welcoming Ministry welcomes newcomers to the church and parish, striving to make them feel comfortable, to answer any of their questions and to find their niche in our parish community.

Pew cards are available for prospective members to complete and leave on the collection plate or give to a sidesperson.

A welcome brochure and supporting material is mailed out to new members upon receipt of their expressed interest in joining the parish. 

Meet and Greet sessions are held at least twice a year in June and December. The current format includes a tour of the Cathedral and Belfry followed by a light lunch with members of the parish leadership where further information can be given and any questions answered. 

Blue mugs are available for use by newcomers at coffee time after the Sunday services. A notice in the leaflet draws attention to this initiative so everyone can be made welcome if they so desire. 

Anniversary cards are mailed to baptismal candidates on the anniversary date of their baptism. 

The Committee meets regularly and would welcome any new suggestions or members. Anyone interested in joining this Ministry should contact the Cathedral Office: 250.383.2714 or
