dsc_0105Ushers and Greeters

The role of usher/greeter is to welcome parishioners and guests upon entering the church.  Ushers assist parishioners to locate a seat, assign people to present the gifts, are responsible for taking up the collections, guide the communion procession in an orderly, reverent manner and distribute the parish at the doors of the church after Mass.  Men, women and young adults in high school or older who are worshipping  Catholic parishioners are invited to participate.  Ushers must be willing to serve as needed at the Saturday/ Sunday liturgy, special liturgical services, and holy days.  Contact Vinnie at (516) 593-1347.
