The Sixth Sunday of Easter
OLA Greeters Ministry – Needs your help!
As you may have noticed, a new ministry at OLA started this past fall – the Greeters Ministry. Greeters are the first to welcome those who enter our church to worship and make them comfortable in our community. The purpose of this ministry is to provide an enthusiastic, positive, spiritual and friendly welcome to each person entering OLA before every worship service.
We still need Greeters – especially for Masses at 5pm (Vigil), 8am, and 12pm. The only requirements are : 1) Arrive at Mass 15 minutes before it begins to welcome people as they enter church; and 2) commit to being a Greeter at 1 Mass of your choice per month. Please consider donating your time and talent to this ministry. If you are interested or have any questions, please contact Cathy Kunsch at 610-902-0202 or firstname.lastname@example.org
