Below contains historical information about the Usher Ministry.

Ushers coordinate much of the logistical duties needed to conduct a Mass. The roles include:

Greeting Parishioners: Along with the greeters ministry, ushers welcome parishioners at the doors to help create a warm, joy filled, and welcoming community here at St. Thomas the Apostle. We want people to feel the same goodness that you feel when you get a warm cordial greeting from family and friends.

Mass Logistics: In addition to greeting as described above, ushers seat parishioners, handle the collection, distribute materials including the weekly Bulletin and help with whatever is needed.

Being a part of the Ushers Ministry gives one the opportunity to serve and parish and help do God’s work here on earth.
