Ushers/Ministers of Hospitality

 

Ushers provide our parish with a variety of meaningful services. Among the more common and obvious services are: welcome both parishioners and visitors to our church. Ushers assist people in locating available seating during crowded liturgical ceremonies. Ushers take up the offertory and special collections. Because of our direct contact with people of all ages, personalities and dispositions, we are also referred to as Ministers of Hospitality.

We try to service parishioners and visitors with kindness, compassion, and reverence, as is appropriate in the House of God.
