Saint Denis Adult Choir: Consider joining our choir - it is a nice group of people who enjoy singing - come to our first rehearsal - we need newmembers. MEN - we especially need your voices to give some balance to our group - you'll find the "guys" and "gals" great to work with!! We are all looking forward to meeting some new people. We are also looking for children (grades 5 and up) to let us know if they play an instrument.

"Welcome one another, then, as Christ welcomed you, for the glory of God." Romans 15:7

We, the people of St. Denis Parish, recognize our call to grow as a faith community. Accepting the privilege and challenge of this call: --- We celebrate our life of faith through parish liturgy with full participation of the laity; ---We endeavor to respond, in a Christ-like way, to the needs of all by living the message of the Gospel through a variety of outreach programs. One such program is the Ministry of Greeters/Hospitality.

Greeters' Mission Statement

Our mission in the Greeters Ministry is to enrich the life of each person entering the doors of St. Denis Church by welcoming and supporting them in a positive, friendly and spiritual manner. The Greeters' goal is to have attendance at Liturgy at St. Denis' Parish be an enjoyable experience for our regular parishioners and any visitors who are with us.

Purpose

We have all come to share our stories in many unique ways through our Stewardship of Time, Talent and Treasure. Creating a warm, loving, nurturing and welcoming church is important in our ministry.

The purpose of this ministry is to provide an enthusiastic, positive, spiritual and friendly welcome to each person entering Saint Denis before every worship service and special service. Greeters are responsible for establishing that "first impression" for those entering God's house. Their ministering abilities in welcoming Parish members into the Church creates a warm sense of personal worth in those they greet and for all the prayerful activity to follow. Stewardship and Hospitality are intertwined. This ministry is based in gratitude for God's boundless generosity. We are committed to help make every worship experience at Saint Denis positive and spiritually uplifting for everyone, at every service.

Activities

This ministry is designed to be supportive and sensitive to the needs of the church and the congregation by assisting the ushers, pastoral staff and other ministries as needed. Opportunities will be available for the greeters to assist before and after each worship service.

Key Responsibilities

--- Greeters welcome parishioners and visitors as they arrive at the church. --- Greeters open doors, help the elderly, and on special circumstances work hand in hand with our Ushers as they help in seating arrangements and guide parishioners during the liturgy celebration ---They answer questions concerning the parish, committees, and the community. ---They distribute weekly bulletins and, on occasion, other 'hand-outs' appropriate to the occasion. ---They SMILE :)
