The Welcoming Team is a group of volunteers working for the Catholic Diocese of Helsinki.
It is very important to welcome the new members of our Church. Many of them come from different countries with their own backgrounds and cultures.
Based on the experiences of the current members’ of the Welcoming Team, we try to find the best ways to welcome newcomers, so that they can 'feel at home' and not hesitate to be active in the Church. We want to develop a sense of belonging to the Church. We work in close cooperation with the priest(s) of your Parish.
We are based at the Studium Catholicum in Helsinki and plan to have monthly gatherings for new members as well as for all members of the Catholic Church every second Sunday of the month. The gatherings take place from 1.00 to 3.00 p.m at the Studium Catholicum (click here for directions). Each time, there is an interesting programme: discussion, food, music/singing /dancing performance!
For pictures from past meetings, please go to the Welcoming Team page at the Studium.fi website.
