SPOTLIGHT ON: Ushers and Greeters

Greeters and ushers

The Usher/Greeter ministry extends a warm hello to all those arriving for Mass on weekends and assists people in finding a place to sit while attending Mass or other church services.  If there are materials to be handed out to the congregation, questions to be answered by those entered the church, or directions needed, Users will assist.  In addition, if someone attending mass needs to have the Holy Eucharist brought to them because they are unable to walk to the sanctuary, Ushers will alert the presiding priest of this need near the end of Communion time. The Ushers/Greeters are also responsible for collecting offerings from the congregation during Offertory along with other volunteers.

Men and women of the parish, including high school students, who have a willing smile to share, are familiar with the physical layout of the church, and enjoy welcoming others can volunteer for this ministry.  It can be a great way to meet other parishioners!  A training session is offered various times throughout the year.

For more information, please contact the parish office at 946-1675.
