The Art of Welcoming: A 3-part Series on the Vision and Practice of Hospitality

Part Three: The Example of Maria Mahalik

Maria Mahalik’s life does not fit in a box, and neither does her heart for hospitality. Widowed young with three small boys, she’s led a life of faith that would leave many of us gasping for air. In the midst of work and parenting and trials and ministry, Maria always makes time for people. Many have walked through the door of her home and found the door to Christ’s home.

The Art of Welcoming: A 3-part Series on the Vision and Practice of Hospitality

Part One: Talking with Sarah Krause

Sarah’s life is a welcome sign. A young math teacher fresh out of college, she has a lot on her plate, but never too much to ignore hospitality. Interviewing her was a huge treat, and we came away freshly inspired to live like Jesus. You’ll be encouraged no matter your age, but if you’re a younger woman, read on and glean some great ideas for how to change your world in an unlikely way.

An Interview with Felicia Corrigan

Felicia lives in West Chester with her husband, Jay, and their young son, Ezra. She’s been attending Covenant since 2017, when a friend invited her. She found community almost instantly and loves being part of the church family. She and Jay have been married for almost two years and attend the Altieris’ community group. 

Felicia, you’re still a newlywed. What have you been learning about marriage?
I’m learning how to be a better communicator, especially in conflict. I tend to run away in fear when I sin and shut down when I feel hurt, but Jay encourages me to face and confess my sins and express my hurts. He leads so well in communication and in asking for and granting forgiveness.
