The mission of the Greeter/Usher ministry is to welcome all, stranger and friend, that come to worship and help provide a positive experience while attending our parish liturgies and celebrations.

Duties of The Greeters

  • Greeters welcome all who enter the building with a warm smile and a “Hello”.
  • Greeters are sometimes asked to help distribute worship aids and at times assist the ushers.

Duties of The Ushers

  •  Assist with seating in our worship space.
  • Enlist families to bring up the gifts during the Preparation.
  • Collect the weekly offerings and assure it is stored safely.
  • Assist with the Communion procession, assuring that all assembled receive.
  • Distribute the weekly Bulletin after all Masses.
  • Assist in emergency situations that might arise.
  • Answer general questions about the parish and grounds, and direct those needing more information to the appropriate person.

Who Can Be A Greeter/Usher?

  • Any parishioner, high school age and above.
  • Ushers/Greeters is a great ministry for new parishioners to meet others
