The Ministry of the Greeter takes on the task of extending the Lord’s personal warmth to each person who enters the church. In addition to offering a welcoming spirit at the door of the church, greeters are often the first to be of assistance to those who come to visit. They are often helpful about basic needs, i.e., where are the rest rooms? It is therefore important that they are informed and helpful by nature. Additionally, they are of assistance on big feasts for the orderly reception of Holy Communion and acting as ushers.
All Greeters receive a basic orientation which lasts about one hour. They are expected to arrive at their assigned Mass at least 15 minutes before Mass begins. The commitment is for one year for one Sunday of the month with an option to renew, if desired.
