The purpose of the Welcoming of New Parishioners is to show interest to a new member and their families through a welcoming process explaining what is available for their spiritual growth.

The parish Priest makes an initial call to the family if he has not met them in person. A member of this committee will also call to welcome them and ask if there is something they can do to fulfill the new member(s) needs here at St. Elizabeth Seton.

Once a year, a welcoming party is hosted for new members of the church, with introductions of each other and explanations of the various ministries they have joined in order to be an active member of the community of St. Elizabeth Seton.
