Ushers and Greeters
St. Bede Ushers Group is a service organization responsible for greeting the congregation as they arrive for Mass and seating them as necessary. They determine if people who are infirm wish the Eucharist to be brought to them and notify the Eucharistic Ministers.
Ushers take up the collection and ask parishioners to take up the gifts at the Offertory. They also pass out bulletins and help to straighten up the church after Mass. Ushers arrive at the church 15 minutes prior to the processional.
All ushers are acting in the name of and representing the church. Therefore, all ushers must participate in the Protecting God’s Childrenprogram and obtain the necessary clearances.
