Guest Hospitality Needed

Leave a comment

Hospitality is such an important part of being Christian. Unfortunately, it has been getting harder to find the time to prepare for guests. We need your help.
We are looking for parishioners who are willing to occasionally prepare the guest room when we have priests, speakers, or just simply guests coming to stay at St Joseph’s rectory. It would entail making sure the bedding is fresh, and the bathroom has clean towels and washcloths, soap, shampoo, toothpaste, floss, decorations and scents. You can be as creative as you want to make things fun! You will also let the office know if something needs fixing (lights, TV, heat, cooling and such). After the guest
has left, you will need to wash the sheets, towels and washcloths. We will take care of having the rooms cleaned.
We will need at least two people or teams to make sure of availability. This might be a fun opportunity to help our guests feel welcome. Are you willing to help out?

We are two Catholic Churches close to downtown Freeport, IL. Our communities are over 150 years old and have been dedicated to our lord Jesus Christ since our inception. We believe in God the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was concieved by the Holy Spirit, born of ythe Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilot, was crucified, died and was buried; he descended into hell; on the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the father almighty; from there he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
