On Sunday, we gather as the Body of Christ to celebrate the Lord’s Day, the day of Christ’s Resurrection. This celebration is not a solitary, private event. Instead, we come together as the People of God, the Church, to worship with one heart and one voice. All are welcome!
Daily – 8:30 a.m.
Saturday – 5:00 p.m.
Sunday – 8:00, 9:30, 11:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.
“Whoever received you receives me, and whoever receives me receives the one who sent me.” Matthew 10:40
Today we reach out to anyone with a welcoming nature. If you have a desire to grow our welcoming atmosphere and be the one to receive those who walk through our doors at Holy Spirit, you may well be suited and called to join the usher ministry currently led by Laura Smith. Why would you want to be an usher? Our current ushers say:
“As an usher I am blessed to be a servant and doorkeeper to our house of worship. It is a special feeling to see the smiling faces when worshippers come and the peaceful faces when they leave.”
“I find my service as an usher to be a very rewarding because I am the welcoming ambassador for the parish and part of the team that contributes to the overall flow of Mass for our community. I have an opportunity to greet familiar and new faces into Mass, help them find seating, oversee the collections, escort the kids to CLOW and distribute the bulletins. It is amazing how many people I connect with outside of Holy Spirit who say, ‘Hey, I know you. Aren’t you an usher at Holy Spirit Church?’”
“Ushering provides me an opportunity to serve the community at liturgy. We welcome the people, assist the altar servers where needed, mange the collections and perform a range of tasks to assist with any needs that arise. The requirements change with the situation and it is satisfying to figure out what is needed and respond.”
Simply put: “I enjoy being an usher because I like helping our Holy Spirit Church and being involved in my community.”
