Ushers

Ushers are parishioners who are at least 18 years of age or older (younger if they serve with a parent) who assist with the logistics at Mass.  An important responsibility of the Usher Ministry is to greet everyone who enters our church doors with a smile and a warm welcome.  Ushers help ensure that the worship space environment allows the parishioners to focus on the word of God and they help ensure the Mass runs smoothly and without disruption. 

Ushers arrive 30 minutes prior to Mass, greet all those who enter the building and help find available seating.  They handle the offertory collection, including sorting the collection before presenting it to the priest, and send forth the gift bearers in a timely manner, direct communion flow, and straighten up the church following Mass.  Ushers need to be ready to answer questions and assist people as needed.  This ministry requires a training session, a background check, and attending "Protecting God's Children" before you will be scheduled. You can be scheduled for any Mass you wish. Taking on this responsibility requires being present when you are scheduled or finding a substitute. There are additional opportunities to serve on Holy Days and other special liturgical celebrations.  Please prayerfully consider serving God by serving this community as an Usher.
