Welcome Ministry


Hello and Welcome to St. Simon Parish!

St. Simon Parish is a welcoming, dynamic and united faith community. All are welcome and we hope you will find our parish environment supportive and loving… a place to grow spiritually… a place to put your faith in action… a place where parishioners are encouraged to use their stewardship gifts of time, talent and treasure as disciples of Jesus Christ.

Our Welcome Committee is the catalyst of our ONE parish theme, offering a sincere welcome to all new parishioners through email, phone call, personal invitation and semi-annual receptions.

Donut Sundays

The St. Simon Welcome Committee supports our monthly fellowship weekends during the school year. Coffee, juice and donuts are served after the 7:30am, 9:00am and 11:15am Sunday Masses giving Parishioners a chance to meet and build community.  Spooncer Hall turns into a “Room for Fellowship” where our parishioners have an opportunity to enjoy a treat, beverage and mingle.

August 28, 2022
October 2, 2022
