“…Lord, … and when did we see you a stranger and welcome you? Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.” ~Mt 25:37; 40
Greeter is a liturgical ministry of hospitality to welcome all who come to pray with us at Mass. A Greeter is the first face one encounters upon approaching the doors to the Church.
The job of Greeter is very simple, but important. Our Greeters help to bring a warm and welcoming environment to our parish. After signing up, Greeters should arrive about 20 minutes before Mass is to begin, check-in in the sacristy, then position yourselves at one of the doors to welcome parishioners and guests.
The ministry of Greeter perpetuates the essence of Jesus’ own ministry and mission. He welcomed the least and the littlest; extended love, patience, tolerance and acceptance to all.
