Welcome to our Parish!
Warmly greet newcomers and parishioners before Masses. After Masses be available to distribute Welcome Packets and assist with parish registrations. This is a ministry in which the entire family can participate and requires only 10-15 minutes, once a month.
Welcome Masses and Luncheons
This committee plans and hosts these quarterly events held at the 10:45 am Mass followed by a luncheon in the Ministry Center. The purpose is to warmly welcome our newly registered parishioners. We also inform them of the many growth opportunities our vibrant church offers them. Youth involvement and students needing service hours are welcome to attend.
Moving On After Moving In
This is a 9 week session offered in the Fall and Spring. Based on the book After the Boxes are Unpacked: Moving on After Moving In by Susan Miller, this ministry is designed to enfold, encourage and engage women who are new to the community. We meet weekly to provide each other with personal and spiritual support and to learn about Charlotte and the St. Gabriel faith community. The group enables people to make connections to facilitate their adjustment to their new environment. Meetings are followed by lunch at one of the local restaurants.
Foster Christian hospitality to parishioners and visitors in church. Opportunities for youth at the 5:00 pm Mass on Sundays.
