Hospitality

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
