PLM - Ministers of Hospitality

Ministers of Hospitality are men, women and young adults of the parish who assist with the logistics at Mass.  An important responsibility of the Hospitality Ministry is to greet everyone who enters our church doors with a smile and a warm welcome.  Ministers of Hospitality help ensure that the worship space environment allows the parishioners to focus on the word of God and they help ensure the Mass runs smoothly and without disruption. 

Ministers of Hospitality arrive 30 minutes prior to Mass, greet all those who enter the building and help find available seating.  They handle the offertory collection, including sorting the collection before presenting it to the priest, and send forth the gift bearers in a timely manner, direct communion flow, and straighten up the church following Mass. Ministers of Hospitality need to be ready to answer questions and assist people as needed.  Taking on this responsibility requires being present when you are scheduled or finding a substitute. There are additional opportunities to serve on Holy Days and other special liturgical celebrations.  For more information or to become a Minister of Hospitality, call Bob Barrett at (941) 697-3629, email at [email protected] or complete the Volunteer Information Request Form below.

Volunteer Information Request Form

I am interested in receiving information and/or talking with a Ministry Leader regarding the following Ministry. I have reviewed the information on the webpage regarding this Ministry and would be interested in speaking with the Ministry Leader.

I understand that if I decide to join in this ministry, I will need to complete a Volunteer Application Form and, as a part of the Diocese of Venice Safe Environment requirements, all volunteers must take a Safe Environment Training program. Some volunteer opportunities involving children and vulnerable adults also require a fingerprint and background check. (The Parish will pay the fee for this).

Please fill in contact information below.

A Ministry Leader will be in contact with you in the immediate future. Thank you for your interest in sharing your time and talent. This is NOT a Volunteer Application Form but a form to request additional information about the ministry(s) you may be interested in.
