10 Ways to Practice Hospitality at Christmas
This past weekend we saw an article published by the Catholic News Agency on the efforts being made in the Archdiocese of Detroit to welcome people to their parishes this Christmas. The Communications Director for the Diocese says in the article, “We target at Christmas knowing there are people who come there for the first time or they haven’t been with us for a while,” he said. “One of the things is we want to be unusually gracious and hospitable for people that come to our churches.” In preparation the Archdiocese hosted a one-day training for parish leaders. One of the speakers, Fr. Steve Pullis, offered 10 ways to practice hospitality this Christmas:
I found his talk inspiring and a good reminder of the importance of practicing Generous Hospitality as the Christmas season approaches. Fr. Pullis’ talk can be found here:
While you are on You Tube, I would encourage you also to take a look at the talk given by Fr. John Riccardo. Fr. Riccardo will be our keynote speaker at the Summit in 2019. MARK YOUR CALENDARS for SEPTEMBER 28, 2019. I am excited to have him here. I think his talks will be inspiring!
