Br. Tyrone Davis, CFC, Director of the Office of Black Ministry in the Archdiocese of New York, has a few simple messages about welcoming in a parish environment. Leaders can start by making hospitality important in word and deed, and then asking parishioners to extend a friendly greeting.
Br. Tyrone's video is part of a series included in Be My Witness, a unique approach to parish evangelization presented by RENEW International. Providing a welcoming environment is one of the "Five Key Areas that Matter" for an evangelizing parish.
