Greeters/Ushers

Greeters/Ushers:

  • Welcome parishioners with a warm smile and a greeting
  • Seat parishioners
  • Pay special attention to visitors
  • Help families carry gifts at offertory procession
  • Pass baskets at collection time
  • Ensure orderly flow at Communion time
  • Distribute bulletins and other handout material

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.

Skills:

  • Warmth
  • Friendliness
  • and openness to hospitality are essential to this ministry

Always making your first word a word of welcome is important.
