Ministers of hospitality are hosts and hostesses, welcoming people as they gather to celebrate in the Mass. They are usually the first formal representatives of the parish encountered by worshippers as they enter the Church.
“May the church be the place of God’s mercy and love, where everyone can feel themselves welcomed, loved, forgiven and encouraged to live according to the good life of the Gospel. And in order to make others feel welcomed, loved, forgiven and encouraged, the church must have open doors so that all might enter. And we must go out of those doors and proclaim the Gospel.” ~Pope Francis
