Greeters and Ushers
Greeters and Ushers are called to be Ministers of Hospitality. We are entrusted with promoting a sense of welcoming and belonging to all the faithful assembled for worship. We are the first point of contact for the communal celebration of the Liturgy and because of this, we are living representatives of the Parish.
Greeters and Ushers minister to the entire community in a very active way. By freeing each person of their own personal impediments to the Mass through a welcoming atmosphere, we take an active role in enabling each person to come to a freer expression of God in the Liturgy. We accomplish this through patience, reverence, sensitivity, compassion, understanding, gentleness, and embracing a sense of the family gathered as the Body of Christ. We strive to seek the face of Christ in everyone who enters the Cathedral doors.
In general we: open doors to make sure the main entrance is welcoming to all, welcome parishioners and guests with love at the entrances to the Cathedral, attend to the needs of the disabled, check the worship space before and after Mass to clear the pews of used worship aids and bulletins, restock the entrances with worship aids and bulletins for the upcoming Mass, and assist in the Rite of Preparation by receiving the Offertory.
