Our parish welcome program is held monthly, but the pastor is also available to meet privately with families who cannot attend the regularly scheduled monthly meeting. There are three steps to this spiritual process of welcoming and welcoming back.
Step One: Please fill out a parish census form and turn it in to the parish office. Thank you for introducing yourself to us. Welcome!
Step Two: Please introduce yourself to the pastor before or after Mass sometime. Thank you for praying with us at Mass each weekend!
Step Three: Receive an invitation from the pastor to attend the welcome program. Thank you for becoming part of our faith community!
For new and returning parishioners, the welcome program is the first part of their sacramental preparation for baptisms and weddings. After completing the welcome program, the pastor will schedule a follow-up meeting to schedule and prepare for these special sacraments.
Here is an overview of our parish welcome program. Active parishioners are also welcome to take part in this program in order to renew and deepen their personal commitment to a Catholic Christian lifestyle. All are welcome!
Focus One: understanding and accepting the basic gospel message of Catholic Christianity – cf. www.StDaniel.org/new-life
Focus Two: the basics of active parish membership – cf. the power-point presentation at www.StDaniel.org/parish-info
Focus Three: personal interview with the pastor to discern a personal spiritual plan for the parishioner’s faith life in Christ
Saint Daniel Church looks upward in faith, moves forward in hope, and leads onward in love to new life in Christ. As a faith community of prayer, learning, and service, we invite you to join us as Intentional Disciples of Christ! Please look over our parish website to discover all that our parish has to offer.
