MINISTRY OF GREETER
Contacts: Helen Hesketh & Loraine Colby, Coordinators
greeters@stlouise.org

Purpose:
Our goal is to have every person who comes through the St. Louise Parish church doors feel connected with our parish family. By welcoming each person in a positive, friendly, and spiritual manner, we help create a warm spiritually healthy parish environment that shows “We are happy that you have come.” Our goal is for everyone who enters St. Louise Parish to feel welcomed and loved.

We strive to provide an atmosphere of acceptance, especially for all of our first-time guests without ignoring our parishioners. Being greeted at the door becomes a visitor’s or parishioner’s first contact upon arriving for the Eucharistic Celebration, and shows that the Eucharist Celebration is a communal activity and everyone has a place at the table.
