Greeters

The Greeter serves as ambassador of kindness by greeting and providing a genuine, warm and welcoming atmosphere, especially for all of our first time visitors and members alike.

The Greeter is an extension of the Priest. A priest cannot personally greet each member of the congregation, but we act in his place welcoming all those who come to share in our Mass.

The Greeter is a minister of hospitality which goes above and beyond greeting and welcoming newcomers and parishioners. We represent St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church, as we are the first people that you see when you come in through the doors of the church.

The Goal of the Greeter:

  1. To put each person immediately at ease and make them feel comfortable so that they can receive all that God has for them in the service.
  2. To make parishioners aware of the ecclesial nature of Catholic Liturgy, that Liturgy worship is not an individual matter apart from others, but a call to join together in praising and giving thanks to God.
  3. To promote diversity in our parish.
  4. To direct people to locations and times of the ministries available at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church: Children’s Liturgy of the Word, children’s faith formation classes, RCIA, Knights of Columbus special events, Reconciliation times, and mass times and schedules.
  5. To distribute materials.

Our Goal as a greeter has more to do with relationships than mechanical aspects of handing out special church announcements, or programs as requested by the Pastor. Sometimes this includes a list of special activities during Lent, a map of the school and the different facilities of our parish, some history or a list of week-day activities.
