"We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do."
- Mother Teresa
We are so excited about this great new ministry! Every weekend we hope to have smiling greeters at every door, before and after every Mass. We want to make a difference in the lives of others, with the gift of a smile! Mother Teresa encourages us with her words, "Smile at each other, smile at your wife, smile at your husband, smile at your children, smile at each other -- it doesn't matter who it is --- and that will help you to grow up in greater love for each other."
How can you volunteer for the Smile Ministry? We have a shared google document (see link below) that allows parishioners to sign-up for a date, Mass time and door. We currently have different ministries assigned to cover specific weekends, but the fourth weekend is always open for anyone that wants to help.
