At St. Joseph, this welcome motto is taken seriously (with a smile of course).
We train our ushers to be welcoming to ALL who visit our parish. Our Ushers are blessed with the gift of hospitality.
We believe that hospitality is a vital part of the parish’s ministry. What would have happen if Jesus was not invited to stay for a meal by the two men who were walking with him on the road to Emmaus? Would Jesus Christ have been revealed? A stranger invited in may have a revelation or gifts to share with the Church.
We are very much aware of the importance of welcoming all.
