Ushers welcome, greet and assist those arriving for Mass. They are the first face many of our guests and visitors meet as they enter the parish. Ushers distribute bulletins, song sheets and other handouts. They assist those using wheelchairs or walkers, take up collections and assist in the orderly distribution of Communion. They play a critical role behind the scenes in the liturgy itself, overseeing lighting, sound systems, and the use of doors. Trained in the inner workings of the building, they assist in emergency, power outages, fire alarms, etc. Ushers are scheduled at the Mass of their choice twice a month.
