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
Book and the Bread, and through the ministry of
ushers like me.
I ask this in Jesus’ name.
Ushers are a very important ministry! Ushers are the first contact parishioners have with someone from the church. When parishioners walk through the doors and are greeted with a handshake and smile from an usher, we truly are living out on of Gods greatest commandments: Mark 12: 31 “...‘Love your neighbor as yourself.....’”
Ushers do many things from greeting people and making them feel welcome, taking up the collection, finding people seats, responding to emergencies, ensuring the safety and comfort of parishioners and many other duties.
If you are unable to fill your assigned spot please find a replacement. If you have any scheduling issue or anything related to the ministry of ushers, or if you would like to become a usher, please contact:
