After the Ministries of Word and Sacraments, Hospitality is one of the most important ministries in the Church. Hospitality is not simply or primarily about serving cookies or meals at parish gatherings. Nor is hospitality the responsibility of only a few people. It involves everyone in one way or another. From those serving to those being served. By experiencing true hospitality, parishioners and guests find a place of belonging and care among the members of the Parish. The Ministry of Hospitality is part of our history as a parish. Looking forward, we want to further incorporate this vision of hospitality into everything we do.
Our Hospitality Ministry Here at St Titus consists of many parts providing for our parishioners and surrounding area with Bereavement luncheons, bridal and baby showers, graduation, weddings, parties and much more. Below is a breakdown of each ministry and how you can be a part of any one of them.
Dorothy Day said: "If everyone were holy and handsome, it would be easy to see Christ in everyone. But it was not Christ's way for himself. Ask honestly what you would do when a beggar asked at your house for food. Would you give it on an old cracked plate, thinking that was good enough? Do you think that Martha and Mary thought that the old and chipped dish was good enough for their guest? It is not a duty to help Christ -- it is a privilege."
