Our Hospitality Ministers have very important jobs during a Liturgy. First, they are the smiling greeters of the Faithful, welcoming all visitors and parish members to that Liturgy. They share Worship Aids and Bulletins as well.
Whenever possible, Hospitality Ministers choose the people that are going to bring the gifts up to the Altar during the Presentation of the Gifts. Often, they choose relatives of living and/or deceased parishioners for whom that Mass is being offered. Hospitality Ministers also take up the collection from the Faithful, and bring that collection to the Altar.
Finally, Hospitality Ministers help guide the Faithful to receiving Holy Communion, and notify the Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion that there are people unable to approach the Altar due to mobility issues.
If you are interested in becoming a Hospitality Minister, please contact Deacon Al Censullo.
