        Welcome Ministry

              This organization extends a personal welcome

       to newly registered members of our parish community.

                        Welcome Ministry Objectives:

•To make home visits to newly registered families or individuals,

        welcoming them to the St. Columbkille parish family.

•To assist in creating opportunities for newly registered families or

        individuals to be involved in parish life.

                   For more information or to join, contact:

            Jennifer Grecko at (724) 899-2880.  

The Welcome Ministry does not have regularly scheduled meetings,

                       but meets instead on an “as needed” basis.

How we do what we do:

The parish office notifies the Welcome Ministry contact person of a newly registered family or person.  That information is then forwarded to a member of the Welcome Ministry, who then makes arrangements for a home visit.  At the time of the visit, we share information, and answer questions about St. Columbkille parish.

We also bring to the families or individuals a St. Columbkille Welcome folder, containing parish information, and a coupon good for 6 free muffins from the Imperial Dough Company, compliments of owners and parishioners Dan and Peggy Liwosz.


The Welcome Ministry is a very rewarding ministry.

It's heartwarming to see so many families pleasantly surprised and truly happy

to receive such a “warm welcome” from members of our parish family.
