W.I.N. (Welcome and Inform New parishioners)

W.I.N. = Welcome and Inform New parishioners


St. Thomas the Apostle church Mission statement:

We are a caring, welcoming Christian community experiencing God

through the spirit of warmth, joy and belonging.”


How we came to be:

We saw a need to reach out to our new parishioners in a way that reflects the mission statement of our parish.


Typical Activities:

Parishioners are contacted by phone, if possible, to welcome them and answer any questions they may have.  With their permission, they are welcomed to the rest of the parish in the bulletin. Welcome bags filled with information about our ministries are delivered to their homes.  We then make arrangements for our new parishioners to receive homemade goodies, baked and delivered by their fellow parishioners.  


Our Goal:

To show new parishioners the warmth and caring they will find as members of our parish family.
