All Are Welcome In This Place!

YOU are invited to a

Welcoming Ministry Kick-Off Gathering

Saturday, September 29 at 9:30 am in the Church

Ushers, Greeters, Hospitality Ministers, and all Interested People!

Come share a light breakfast and discuss how we can work together to continue the Welcoming Spirit of St. Giles.

Welcoming has always been a part of our culture.

Welcoming is even in the mission of St. Giles:
Welcoming, Worshiping and Walking the Way.

This Fall, we will be celebrating our Welcoming Ministry:

What are Greeters?
A new way for us to create a friendly and accepting atmosphere at St. Giles!

Greeters are parishioners who:
Smile and greet all who come to Mass,
Work with the Ushers to ensure that each person who enters feels as comfortable as possible,
Have a loving heart and a welcoming spirit,
Arrive about 15 minutes before their scheduled Mass.

The Ushers:
Create an open and accepting atmosphere, guiding everyone who walks through the doors of St. Giles.

The Hospitality Ministers:
Cook, bake, set up, and serve our legendary hospitality celebrations after Mass.

A new way to be the face of St. Giles!
It’s time to sign up! We need you!

If you would like to join this new ministry, come to the Welcoming Ministry Gathering.
