The Hospitality Ministers offer a warm, friendly greeting to those arriving for Mass. They extend the Christian community’s hospitality to welcome all parishioners, visitors, and newcomers. We also help new parishioners complete registration forms and answer questions about our parish. We call newly-registered parishioners who indicate on their registration form that they would like a phone call.

Members of the Funeral Ministry team attend and assist with Funeral Masses at Presentation. Through their presence and prayer, the volunteers assist families at the time of a funeral by offering hospitality and showing support and concern to those who are grieving. Volunteers are needed to be present at the funeral liturgy. We serve as Eucharistic Ministers, Lectors,
Greeters, etc., as needed. This is an opportunity to show those who are grieving that Presentation cares about them and prays with them.
