Welcoming People
« on: November 17, 2004, 11:55:06 PM »
Hi All. :)

Recently, I was reading something about ways to make people feel welcome in your parish and just wondered if any of you have any experience with this.  Years ago in my parish we sort of tried to re-institute the order of doorkeeper, more with the idea of welcoming people to the parish and helping them orient themselves.  I think maybe we should think about getting this going again.    I guess one can also have inquirer's classes or small groups or the like.  What do you guys think?

Thanks.

Bob

BTW, do you think I put this post in the right place?

Religion is a disease, and Orthodoxy is its cure.

I think it's in an appropriate place, though it could be elsewhere; welcoming people is definitely a part of the faithful in a parish being open to the conversion process of others.
