While helping newcomers feel welcome and becoming acclimated to our life at All Saints’, Lauri looks for ways for the newcomer to feel a part of the church family as quickly as possible. Through small group gatherings, social functions, study groups and large parish-wide events, she is always looking for an avenue where the newcomer will connect.
