The corps of ushers covers all weekend Masses and the occasional Holy Day Mass so as to provide greeting and assistance to the Faithful as they enter the church, to assist them in finding seating and in maintaining good order during our worship. Additionally, ushers take up the offertory collection, hand out bulletins and other information after Mass, and help straighten up the sanctuary after each Mass. Some training is required and is provided by the Parish. Young people are especially welcomed to participate in this ministry with adult supervision.
Arrive 15 minutes before Mass to receive directions from sacristan, usher during Mass (take up collections, guide communion lines, control crowds, handle small emergencies), and remain 15 minutes after Mass to tidy the church, hand out bulletins, etc. Recruiter, role model and problem solver.
