Ushers & Greeters

  • If you attend a regular Mass on the weekends, please consider volunteering for the role of usher.  Help us make Saint Mary's a truly welcoming faith community by warmly greeting our parishioners, helping those who need assistance with the handicap lift, arranging for gift bearers and helping with passing the collection basket.  Men and women, from teenagers to seniors, are needed for this important ministry.  

    If you can't commit every week, offer your services on the weekends that you are available.  See the head usher for the Mass and let him know of your willingness to help out.
