Liturgical Ministries

Have you ever considered becoming an Usher for St Michael Parish? – Men, women and teens are welcome to join this ministry. We encourage families or several members of a family to serve together. All Mass times need help. You can serve for the weekends you are available.

Ushers are ministers of hospitality who welcome the Assembly into the house of the Church. They are warm and welcoming to friends and strangers, and good at noticing what needs to be done. They are servants of the assembly who assist in finding seats, directing the flow of processions, facilitating the collections, and attending to other physical needs of our Mass-goers. Ushers are also needed to assist at parish missions, concerts and other special liturgies and services in our church.

Policies and procedures for this ministry are outlined in the Usher Handbook.
