St. Francis Xavier Cathedral Hospitality Ministry

Mission Statement

The Hospitality Ministry will serve God and the Church with decent and order, greeting people warmly, welcoming every one and offering hospitality to all.

Brief History

The ministry of hospitality started  officially in the early nineties under the direction of Fr. Patrick Pinder - now the Archbishop of Nassau. Several training sessions were held briefing the new body on the expected duty of an usher, the outline of the mass and important sections or equipment in the church.

The first elected president was Mr. Henry Johnson who was ably assisted by a new group comprising of females for the the first time. The second president was Mrs. Janice Longley followed by Mrs. Janette Francis. This new body has brought structure to ushering.
