The role of the Usher at each Mass is to ensure that all parishioners are greeted and properly seated. They assist the handicapped and attend to emergencies. Ushers also pass the collection basket during the Offertory collection and assist those parishioners designated to bring the gifts of Bread and Wine to the altar. After Mass, ushers hand out the weekly Church bulletin and prepare the Church for the next Mass. Additionally, ushers take the October census for attendance and Communion.
