Greeters are the first ministers our worshiping community interacts with and therefore are instrumental in making a positive first impression and welcoming everyone who enters through our doors.  One of the most important requirements of being a Greeter is to be able to smile and make someone feel welcome.


  • Welcome, host and create an atmosphere conducive to the act of worship.
  • Assist parishioners as they enter our worship space.
  • Assist worshipers to their seats if they need assistance or if they arrive after Mass has begun.
  • Assist the Mass Coordinator in creating a Mass count of the worshipers.
  • Collect the monetary offerings of the community.
  • Assist the congregation during Holy Communion
  • Assist worshipers that need additional attention, if necessary.
  • Distribute the church bulletins as the assembly leaves the Church
  • Arrange hymnals and check pews after the congregation leaves the Church
  • Children can be greeters at St. Joseph’s! This a wonderful way for youth and/or their families to minister at St. Joseph’s. Youth should be baptized and have received First Eucharist.


  • Able to SMILE, welcome, host, and create an atmosphere conducive to the act of worship.
  • Ability to exchange greetings with persons you do not know and encourage conversations among groups of people.
  • Be watchful of the needs of others, for the unfamiliar face or someone who just needs someone to say Hello!
