A warm smile, a sincere welcome and a friendly disposition let those arriving for Mass that their presence is appreciated.
There is a growing awareness among Catholics of Christ’s presence in the people gathered to pray in his name. We call this gathering of Christians for prayer and worship the “assembly” and consider participation in the assembly as the most basic right and privilege of baptized Christians. A warm smile, a sincere welcome and a friendly disposition let those arriving for Mass that their presence is appreciated.
Just as we greet guests to our home, the role of the Greeter is to make each person of the assembly feel welcome, and tend to their needs. Greeters are knowledgeable about activities occurring in the parish, know the location of various services throughout the complex and stand ready to lend assistance as necessary to the assembly.
This is an excellent ministry for families.
