The primary ministry of ushers is to create a spirit of warmth and welcome; to help create an atmosphere of celebration and peacefulness throughout the Mass. Ushers generally assist with the flow of the liturgy, insuring any special details are handled before Mass, assisting in finding seating for people once the liturgy has begun, taking up the collection, assisting those who are bringing up the gifts, assisting in any emergencies that may occur during Mass and sorting the collection following Mass.
Time Commitment: This ministry is performed while you are at Mass. Ushers are asked to arrive 20 – 30 minutes before Mass begins.
Special Training/Skills Needed: New ushers are trained by the Head Usher assigned for each Mass. You need a willingness to assist others and a welcoming spirit.
When to join: At any time.
