Greeters are the first ministers you see as you approach the church on a Saturday or Sunday. For parishioners and visitors, a friendly smile, a simple "welcome" can help people feel "at home" within "our home".Greeters help to seat parishioners and visitors, prepare baskets and collect offerings. They select someone to carry the gifts and seek out the Mass Coordinator for any special instructions. They continue their ministry of hospitality by identifying to a Eucharist Minister persons needing Communion at their pew. At the conclusion of Mass, they distribute bulletins and return kneelers and hymnals to proper places and in general prepare the church for the next celebration. Time commitment: 1 hour per week.
