The Parish Council is launching a new way to welcome new parishioners to IC, and we need your help! When individuals or families register to become parishioners, we would like to match them up with some current parishioners who can give them a welcome call, fill them in on parish events, and answer any questions they might have about IC or Elmhurst in general.
We hope to have a number of volunteers which will allow us to match people in similar demographics, so that we are in the best position to meet the new parishioners’ needs.
Periodically throughout the year, we will have a little welcome breakfast with newcomers and mentors, to give them an opportunity for a face to face meeting as well as to meet other parishioners and staff members.
We would like IC to be a warm and welcoming place for newcomers. While it won’t require a lot of the volunteers’ time, its impact is so important. If you are able to help to with this new ministry, please contact Gail Macko at 630-530-3498 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
