Ushers

Ushers are needed at all the masses. This is an informally organized group; let an usher know before Mass that you would like to serve, and they’ll be happy to have you on board.

Greeter

Welcome parishioners as they arrive for mass. This is another informally organized group, but such an important one. Please let one of the ushers or other greeters know that you would like to greet too.
