Hospitality

About

MINISTERS OF HOSPITALITY (USHERS/GREETERS) St. Paul instructed the assembled community to “welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, to the glory of God”. (Romans 15:7). “Hospitality is a vital element in creating a sense of community for worship. A person who feels welcomed and valued is much more likely to enter wholeheartedly into the celebration of the liturgy, giving thanks to God for the love that God pours out on us” (Rev. Lawrence Mick). Ministers of Hospitality also called greeters and ushers help to create a friendly and welcoming atmosphere when others come to worship. A few of the minister’s duties would include: 

  • To assist in taking up collection and offertory;
  • To provide assistance to those in need at Masses;
  • To distribute bulletins after Mass;
  • To tidy up the Church pews for the following Mass;
  • To ensure all lights are switched off and doors and windows closed and locked after each Mass.

     A minister of hospitality should be friendly, warm, welcoming and open to serve their fellow parishioners. As we currently have only one or two ministers serving per weekend Mass, we welcome more persons to join this ministry

Eucharistic Ministers

EXTRA ORDINARY MINISTERS OF COMMUNION

Parish priests have been granted the faculty to appoint extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion in their respective parishes, as well as for institutions within their parish boundaries. In addition, any priest celebrant may designate suitable persons to distribute Communion for a specific occasion when the need arises.

Extra Ordinary Ministers of Holy Communion must be Catholics, whose qualities of Christian life, faith, and morals recommend them.

Extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion should show a reverence for the Eucharist, reflect in their full conscious and active participation at the mass.

About

Serving during a church Mass can be a gift to a child, not an obligation. It should be seen as a special hour and great privilege.
Your child will do and learn things that others may never, and see the Mass in ways that others don’t.
Serving on the Altar is a great place to start building skills.
Altar Servers learn skills such as communication and team work, and gain in self confidence.
All children who have received First Holy Communion to come forward to serve as Altar Servers.
Training is arranged on a regular basis
