For I was a stranger and you welcomed me.
— Matthew 25:35

 who we are

We do Christ’s work by greeting and welcoming everyone who walks through our doors. We are His eyes, voice, and smile, able to reach out in love to all. We are the first contact and set the tone for Mass.

This is a very easy ministry, and is also very rewarding. If we do our job, God will use us to reach His people. We just need to be at the door for this to happen.


Our requirements are simple and build on your normal attendance at Mass.

  • There is no schedule, just arrive 20 minutes prior to the start of Mass.

  • Sign in at the Volunteer Desk and pick up name tag if it’s been issued.

  • Stand outside the doors and greet:

    • Make eye contact and smile :)

    • Use any appropriate phrase you are comfortable with - Hi, Hello, Good morning, Good Afternoon, Welcome, etc.

    • Open the doors for those you welcome

We have an annual meeting in October, and dinner is included. If you are interested in joining our ministry, contact Linda Varble by email or phone:, or 281-257-5621.


“Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you.”
