About This Ministry
Ushers help before, during and after mass. They perform a significant variety of tasks which facilitate worship.
Ushers arrive to mass early so that they can assist the faithful in finding seating. They greet people warmly making them welcome. Ushers set up additional chairs if needed during heavy tourist season. They engage fans and air conditioning, as appropriate, for parishioner’s comfort. They hand out “Order of Worship” programs and Bulletins. They take up the one or two collections, as scheduled, during mass, adhering to rigid procedures in the handling of money to ensure no malfeasance. Ushers are available to assist the faithful in wheelchairs or otherwise needing assistance. They are available in emergency situations to provide appropriate help.
Anyone aged 13 or older is welcome to become an usher. Training is provided.
