Greeters serve as part of the Hospitality Ministry at St. Anthony’s by welcoming parishioners and visitors. They promote a sense of welcoming and belonging. Greeters are the first contact that parishioners and visitors have as they enter the Church. They strive to welcome everyone with joy, kindness, reverence and an open heart.
Greeters are responsible for attending the Masses for which they are scheduled, arriving approximately 15 minutes before Mass begins.
If you would like to know more about this Ministry please contact Gloria Lowe by leaving a message for her at the parish office.
Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (EMHC)
St. Anthony’s Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (EMHC) are properly formed, instructed and commissioned lay persons. They are appointed to aid in the distribution of Holy Communion at Mass and to the sick and home bound when the ordained Ministers are unavailable.
EMHC must be fully initiated and practicing members of the Church and be able to receive Holy Communion. They are chosen and appointed by the Pastor, usually for a 3-year term.
