The entire parish family exercises a ministry of hospitality in that we all are to mirror God's welcoming nature in the way we welcome one another.
Certain members of the community take special leadership and concern in seeing that there are no strangers here and that all who come through our doors find a welcome place in our midst.
Men and women are needed at every Mass to greet all who arrive, to answer guests' questions or give directions, to take up the collection, to distribute weekly bulletins, and to perform any other service the assembly may need.
These ushers arrive at least twenty minutes before Mass. They usually stay a few minutes after Mass to tidy up our worship space in preparation for the next liturgy.

Lord, in your love you gather your people this day,
help me to serve them in a Christ like manner,
even as your son Jesus served those who gathered about him.
Make me prayerful, patient, helpful and understanding,
and may I radiate the joy that faith brings as I serve their needs.
Give me your strength to support my fellow ministers.
May all who assemble to celebrate our common faith in the risen savior
be glad of heart for being here
and for having encountered your son in one another,
in our priest, at the tables of the book and the bread,
and through the ministry of ushers like me.
I ask this in Jesus’ name.
