Together in Spirit

Welcome

“He was chosen by the eternal Father as the trustworthy guardian and protector of his greatest treasures, namely, his divine Son and Mary, Joseph’s wife. He carried out this vocation with complete fidelity until at last God called him, saying: ‘Good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of your Lord.’ ”

-- St. Bernardine of Siena

Hospitality Greeter Ministry

It has been said often by new parish members that they feel “welcome” here at St Joseph of the Lakes. That is one of the greatest compliments we can receive. Our Hospitality Ministry plays an important role in this compliment and the Liturgy Commission would like to enhance this ministry with a new Hospitality Greeter.

We are inviting individuals and families to sign up and take a turn as a Hospitality Greeter for a Mass. Your “job” will be simple! You will stand in our gathering space and extend a friendly greeting to those arriving for Mass. When Mass begins, you will find a seat in the worship space to participate in the liturgy.  After Communion is completed, the Greeters will then assist the Hospitality Ministers with the distribution of the bulletins as our parish members leave.  We see this as an opportunity to show our love of Jesus Christ to one another in the simple act of giving special attention to our parish members and visitors.

We will be asking our Faith Formation families to participate so that each week we will have different families taking turns and involving their children. We also would like YOU to help us out and continue to make St Joe’s a welcoming parish that is alive with the Spirit. Simply press the sign up button below and choose your date or dates!
