In a parish, where hospitality is priority, guest and parishioners feel they belong and are appreciated. Hospitality leads to a greater sense o "belonging" and fosters a growth in stewardship. When we are treated with a warm smile and a welcoming spirit, we are open to welcoming others. Willingness to accept others with a heartfelt welcome is a gift of God. Reflect on what you can do to make others feel welcome when they elect to participate with us in our worship services or other parish events.

Dinner Club

Meet new people! Re-acquaint yourself with old friends! Join Magdalen Dinner Club! Two sessions are held each year; one in the Fall and one in the Spring. Sign ups are required for each session. You are grouped into a "club" of between six and eight individuals and/or couples. Each of you takes a turn hosting dinner in your home, providing the main dish and the rest of the group providing the rest of the dinner! You have six months to meet four times. It is a great way to get to know other parishioners and share in Christ's fellowship.

Empty Nesters

The goal of this ministry is to help parishioners meet other parishioners and through the ministry become more connected to the parish.  Although there are no requirements of age, marital status, or even parental status, most of the participants are not too far removed from reorganizing their lives after children have "left the nest".  Our plan is to have a variety of social, service, and formation activities on a regular basis.

Greeters

This ministry consists of single parishioners or parish families who desire and enjoy the opportunity to greet the congregation as they arrive for Mass. Efforts are made to schedule greeters for the Mass they normally attend. Children may participate in this ministry only when accompanied by their parents.  Due to the need to greet the congregation as they arrive to enter the Church, greeters are asked to arrive at least 15 minutes before the start of the Mass.
