GREETERS/USHERS
Parishioners who welcome people as they arrive for Mass and are responsible for gathering for the support of His Church.

An Usher's Prayer: Lord, you make all kinds of people, even people like me. In your love, you gather them all into your Church. As you gather your people this day, help me to serve them in a Christ-like manner, even as your Son served those who gathered about him. Make me prayerful and 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 Gospel and the Eucharist, and through the ministry of ushers like me. I ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.

LECTORS
Teens and adults proclaim God’s Word at all Liturgies. Initial training is provided and periodically Lector Workshops are scheduled. It’s the obligation of a lector to make every effort to attend these workshops. Lector workbooks are available to help prepare for the delivery of God’s Word with respect, dignity, and meaning. Lectors should have a good, strong voice and be able to project God’s Word meaningfully.
