Ushers

The oldest forgotten ministry.  any act of Christian service that helps direct people into fellowship with Jesus Christ is a Ministry. St. Paul, who believed in the power of preaching, the importance of teaching, and the ministry of music also wrote: Everything should be done in a fitting and orderly way" 1 Corinthians 14:40. This is where we at St. Dominic's rely on our gracious ushers. Ushers hold the responsibility of tending to the details of each service so that it is conducted in an orderly way. Including:
  • greeting parishioners
  • initiating collection during Mass
  • seeing to the security of all donations
  • handing out bulletins to attendees upon dismissal of Mass
  • and, of course, escorting attendees with special needs to a seat.
If you would like to help in this vital Ministry, please call the parish office.   For more information and instructions on Ushering click here.  

An Usher's Prayer

Lord, you make all kinds of people, even people like me. In your love you gather them all into your Church. As you gather your people this day, help me to serve them in a Christlike manner even as your Son served those who gathered about him. Make me prayerful and patient, helpful and understanding, and may I radiate the joy that faith brings as I serve their needs. Give me your strength to support my fellow minsters. May all who assemble to celebrate our common faith in the risen Savior be glad of heart for being here and for having encountered your Son in one another, in our priest, at the tables of the Book and the Bread, and through the ministry of ushers like me. I ask this in Jesus' name. Amen.
