- Families or individuals can serve as greeters.
- Ushers should be a teen or adult willing to assist as needed throughout the celebration of Mass.
When the people gather for the celebration of Mass, it is not as individuals but, rather, as a community of believers. Hospitality helps bring together those gathering to pray together. Hospitality creates a sense of community necessary for worship. A person who feels welcomed and valued is more likely to enter wholeheartedly into the celebration of the Mass and to return as a member of the parish community. A friendly and welcoming greeter or usher make God’s love apparent to people as they arrive. Who may serve in this ministry?
