Making All Feel Welcome

The Hospitality Ministry includes those who prepare and plan various events and gatherings, greeters and ushers, and volunteers who provide support during our worship and other services. As first contacts with those walking through Newman's doors, our goal is to welcome in a way that reflects the hospitality of the God we serve.

Special events and activities include:

  • Welcome Coffees
  • New Parishioner Receptions
  • Newman Alumni UNC Homecoming
  • Milestone events like the 75th Anniversary Celebration in 2016 with Mass, Procession, and Auction
  • Newman Student Family Weekends
  • Newman Student Graduation Receptions
  • Student Baccalaureate Mass and Reception

Sunday Morning Coffee and Donuts Ministry

Following the 9:00 am Mass on Sunday mornings, coffee and snacks are served in the Activity Center building. Families and individuals who would like to host during this time find it a great opportunity for fellowship. Members bring snacks to share and spend about an hour setting up and cleaning up.

Greeters and Ushers

Greeters welcome the congregation at the beginning of each weekend Mass, and attend to The Table in the lobby before and after Masses to answer questions and distribute welcome materials to new parishioners. Ushers distribute song sheets in the lobby before Mass, take up the collection during Mass, and distribute bulletins after Mass.
