In the recent Stewardship of Ministry sign-up, one of the areas of service in need of volunteers is that of an Usher.
Ushers greet and welcome; assist in seating parishioners and visitors, take up the offertory at Mass, handout bulletins at the end of Mass, and assist at other liturgical celebrations as well.
Our Lady of Mercy has a very distinguished history of dedicated Ushers who have served so faithfully over the years. Men and Women are welcome to join!
