The ushers are the first official representative of the church you are likely to encounter when you come to weekend liturgies and, as such, play an important role in making people feel welcome. The usher has many duties: to greet you, help you find a seat, count attendance, pass the collection baskets, distribute the bulletin, offer assistance, and ensure an orderly process during the Sacrament of the Eucharist. An usher is called to be prayerful, respectful, polite, helpful, attentive and alert. The concept of an Usher is not new. In the Old Testament we hear of ushers; however, they were called doorkeepers or gatekeepers that played very similar roles. Jesus’ disciples also played the role of an usher in that they prepared the way for Jesus, introduced people to Jesus, and directed people.
