Ushers are the first people parishioners and visitors encounter upon entering the church. The ushers welcome individuals into the church, hand out the daily bulletin, assist with the procession of the bread and wine to the altar, guide parishioners to the altar for communion, and they enable visitors to better experience the worship service by answering any questions they might have. Ushers serve in a highly interactive ministry within the church and have a significant impact on how ‘welcomed’ new parishioners feel upon visiting. Serving as an usher provides the opportunity to share God’s grace and help build God’s community.
If you are interested in serving as an usher, please contact the parish administrator for more information or call 301-865-3270.
