Ushers provide hospitable service at the liturgy by helping to keep order and a sense of safety within the worshiping assembly. Their tasks include: assisting parishioners with seating, procuring the gift bearers for the Offertory procession, taking up the collection, directing the communion procession, distributing the bulletins after the liturgy, and providing assistance in the event of emergencies. This ministry is open to all registered men and women of the parish. (Typically ushers are sixteen years of age or older.) They minister at all liturgies on weekends, Holy Days of Obligation, First Holy Communion, Confirmation and the liturgies of Holy Week.
