St James Greeting Ministry
Thank you for volunteering to be a Greeter at St James! We are thankful for your help to ensure that every parishioner and visitor is greeted and feels welcome as we gather as a community around the Lord's Table. Please read the following notes and guidelines for serving as part of the greeting team:
Please Arrive 20-30 minutes prior to Mass. Feel free to reserve a seat for yourself/your family with belongings/bulletins and introduce yourselves to the ushers and other greeters. If you have a large family and you see there is an opening for a greeter, please spread out accordingly. Extra family members can also help hold the door as people come in.
Use your best judgment on which of your family members should help greet. Keep in mind that it’s always great to see children helping.
Warmly welcome each member of the congregation and offer a bulletin and missal. Smile, make friends and have fun!
Once the procession begins, please take your seat and join Mass. Please plan to stay after mass a few extra minutes to straighten up the books for the next Mass. Thank you so much for serving!
