Aloha Committee

About This Ministry

As the word suggests we want to spread our Aloha to parishioners and visitors.  We would like all to feel that celebrating the liturgy at St. Theresa is special.  First impressions are important.  We “show the love of Jesus to members and guests coming to church.


We station “greeters” at both entrances to the church for both Sunday morning masses.  They engage those attending, trying to make them feel welcome.  Additionally, greeters are positioned to answer questions of those attending.

A welcome party is held quarterly at the rectory to provide a formal welcome and to provide information on ministries.  Care and comfort cards are sent to families who have lost loved ones, families who have relatives hospitalized or have extended illnesses.

We are looking at “appreciation” events to thank those involved in ministry.  “Pot Luck” meals work very well for this purpose.
