Ushers

Ministries

Ushers are our greeters, seaters, and general friendly faces.  Need to know something?
Ask an usher! They will know or find out!


Usher Duties

  • The primary duty of the ushers is to make the members of the congregation feel welcome and to assist during Mass as needed.Ushers should always arrive to Mass early and be ready to serve even if not scheduled.  Emergencies happen!


  • Ushers can help organize the altar/altar servers, the Eucharistic Ministers, and the lectors.  Ushers generally help ensure that there are enough people in place to make Mass go smoothly that Sunday.

  •  Ushers help seat people when they arrive.  If there is overcrowding, ushers help find seats or provide additional seating.  They also help those who have special seating needs.

  • Ushers take up the collection and bring the gifts or find people to bring the gifts (bread, wine, offering)


  • During Communion, ushers assist with orderly procession forweard and also help those with special needs by helping the priest or Eucharistic Minister locate people to whom the Eucharist needs to be brought.


  • Ushers distribute bulletins after Mass and provide other information as needed.


  • Any adult member can become an usher by making his/her intention known to the usher leader (Dan Darity-- that's him in the picture above -- the only man shown!).  Presently, we are blessed to have some members interested and awaiting their turn at training.
