A ministry that welcomes newcomers to the St. Aloysius Parish family. Newcomers’ welcome brunches are held periodically during the year. Other gestures are made to newly registered households to assist them in experiencing a sense of belonging to our larger parish family. This Committee matches families with other Aloysius families to assist them with parish information, hospitality and guidance as needed, especially in the first year of membership in the Parish.
If you are interested in volunteering for the brunches or to be paired with new families:
