Ministry of Hospitality


Ministers of Hospitality greet both our visitors and our parishioners from each parish at entrances to the church at Masses. We wish to ensure that everyone who comes to worship with us will be acknowledged and welcomed. The ministers are there to be attentive to the physical comfort of the parishioners.


A family is chosen to take up the gifts for each Mass. The ministers take up the collection, and assist the family, if necessary, in bringing up the gifts.


Ministers of hospitality assist parishioners in the orderly reception of Communion. They also hand out bulletins at entrances to the church following Mass.


Prior to leaving, the ministers ensure the kneelers are in the resting position and the hymnals are in their slots or at the sides of the pews.


Lights are to be turned off in the churches following Mass.
