“Let mutual love continue. Do not neglect hospitality, for through it some have unknowingly entertained angels.”Letter to the Hebrews 13.1-2
The responsibility of the Usher is to anticipate and assist with any and all physical needs of the worshiping community. The usher is to be helpful and watchful and should be present to the community to assist anyone in need. The usher should know the location of emergency supplies or equipment and be aware of emergency phone numbers. Most importantly, by their own participation in the liturgy, by actively joining in the prayers and hymns, and attentively listening to the Word, they set the tone for the entire congregation.
Each Mass has a head usher who takes a certain responsibility for those he serves with. If you are interested in joining the ushers, you can speak to the Parish Secretary by phone at 330.545.4351.
