Ushers assist with preparation of the Church prior to Mass, greet parishioners, seat the congregation, collect the Offertory, assist the Gift Bearers, direct the congregation during Communion, provide assistance to anyone with special needs, and distribute bulletins at the end of the Mass. Ushers who regularly attend the Saturday Vigil Mass at 5:00 p.m. are accordingly scheduled to that Mass. For Sunday morning Masses, each Usher group will serve the 8:30 or 11:00 a.m. Mass typically for one month, three times each year. There will be a required meeting during the Advent season while other meetings are scheduled only as needed. Easter and Christmas Masses are served on a volunteer basis.
