Greeters are the first people to welcome a new person or family to Immaculate Conception Church. Their primary task is to create an initial atmosphere of love, unity and enthusiasm. Why is this important? One way that Christ reveals himself when we gather for the Eucharist is in the gathering itself. Where two or three are gathered in his name, Jesus is present in a special way. When we gather in our church, he is in our midst because he already dwells in each of us. When we are aware of Christ's presence in one another, we open ourselves and connect with one another in a way that reminds us of our unifying bonds to Christ himself.
Hospitality is not only the responsibility of the greeters and the ushers, but also for all members who are preparing to celebrate the Liturgy. In this way we, who are many parts, become part of one body, the body of Christ.
