St. Paul is a very welcoming parish. Our Greeters are about welcoming people to St. Paul, not only parishioners but especially visitors. Whether the visitor is a new inquirer to Orthodoxy or a life-long Orthodox Christian. It is vital to make them feel welcome and comfortable.
We would like to have 5-6 Greeters to create a monthly schedule for every Sunday. We prefer adults to be Greeters. If you have children, they are welcome to help you.
