“Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in the time of need.” Hebrews 4:16.








Two Greeters:

    • Stand at the entrance doors to the sanctuary

    • Assist the Welcome Ministry by greeting parishioners and visitors, receiving and delivering prayer cards to the priest, and distributing bulletins

    • May also replenish the candles and assist newcomers

    • Join the congregation before the Epistle reading

    • Responsible for collecting the offering from the faithful during Liturgy.



Cloth Holders:

  • Assist the priest and deacon by holding the cloth during Holy Communion at each Divine Liturgy

  • Approach the chalice when the priest exclaims, “In the fear of God, and with faith, draw near!”

  • Remove the cloth from the chalice and hold it under the chin of each person receiving the Eucharist to ensure no particle falls to the ground

  • Receives the Eucharist, fold the cloth, and hand it back to the clergy after everyone else has received Holy Communion
