Ushers and Greeters

The ministry of Ushers and Greeters is a group of men and women who arrive at church 15 minutes before the start of Mass to greet parishioners as they enter the gathering area on their way to Mass.

Ushers also help find seats for parishioners if necessary. In addition, ushers take up the collection, select a family to take the gifts up to the altar, direct traffic flow during communion distribution, hand out bulletins after Mass and prepare the pews for the next Mass.

These ministry are different from some others in that they require no meetings or fund-raising events during the year. The ushers are assigned one Mass per month, at a Mass of their choice, if possible. The greatest need is for ushers to serve at the 5 p.m. Saturday Mass, but help also is needed at the 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Masses on Sunday. Teenagers are welcome to serve as ushers.
