Call to Participate
The Hospitality Committee is composed of volunteers from the Mary of Magdala community. We are always open to additional membership!
We ask for a one year commitment and all you need to bring is your enthusiasm and desire to share your time in this important work of building community. We have one annual committee meetings to schedule and coordinate the monthly suppers, and additional meetings as needed for special events.
If you have a desire for leadership, the chair serves a two year term. Co-chairing the committee is always welcome. This position coordinates volunteers, serves as the point person for the leadership council liaison and contact for requested funeral receptions.
