    Home > Ministries > Liturgical Ministries > Ushers



Ushers, in addition to their responsibilities in welcoming the people, also have many specific duties to perform. They help seat the people; assist in the collection of the gifts; often arrange which family or group will bring the gifts to the priest at the offertory; make sure the Communion procession goes smoothly; and pass out the bulletins at the end of Mass.

Besides being attentive to the needs of the assembly, ushers must also be:  


·         Especially aware of the needs of visitors, the elderly and persons with disabilities

·         Be able to help with other necessities and emergencies


Ushers and greeters work collaboratively as their ministries overlap.
