A fundamental ministry for communities of welcome is that of greeter.

In some cases, ushers who take up the Sunday collection also function as greeters.

However, ushers do not always have the particular skills that are needed to stand at, or outside, the door to greet people warmly.

So, we are inviting parishioners to take up this ministry.

During these summer months our minister for evangelization, Albert Colon, will be preparing greeters to take up this all-important role.
