While lifelong or long time Catholics know exactly what to expect, attending a Catholic Mass can be overwhelming for a visitor or newcomer. They don't know the prayers, when to sit, stand or kneel, or the responses we offer- just to name a few things.
It is our duty to recognize visitors in our churches and to assist them at Mass. Doing so can only make them feel welcome in "our House" and encourage them to return or join our parish! Each one of us is called by Jesus Christ to evangelize - it's Job Number One as a Catholic- and doing so inside our Church speaks volumes to the newcomer as he looks for a new Spiritual Home.
