Greeting/Ushering at Mass is a way of making Christ present in the Liturgy. Ushers help build up the church and create a spirit of welcome and a sense of belonging. It begins with a deep commitment to Christ and to his Church. Strangers are to be put at ease & visitors are to be welcome.
- and openness to hospitality are essential to this ministry
Always making your first word a word of welcome is important.
