Of all our liturgical ministries, ushering is the one where we struggle the most to find enough people to cover all the openings. Anyone, male or female, age 13 or older, is welcome to be trained as an usher. Now is a great time to begin, so you’re ready to help on Christmas Eve/Day when we need more ushers than ever. Let me know if you’d like more information and I’ll email you the hospitality instructions/guidelines. Your first two times ushering, you’ll shadow an experienced usher to learn the ropes. After that we’ll appreciate your help in taking up the collection, guiding the communion route, and handing out bulletins after Mass. Several parishioners have told me how much they enjoy this ministry, especially knowing that their assistance and hospitality help our parishioners and visitors feel welcome and comfortable.
