The role of ushers at OLM is always low profile but essential. The smooth running of Mass depends on them.
Ushers set-up the altar correctly, place the missal at priest’s lectern and then set up the Lectionary to the correct Sunday for readings, light the candles .
We ensure that the congregation is seated safely and comfortably. We ensure that the collection is done in an orderly fashion.
At communion we ensure we call up each row in turn so that receiving Communion is a calm and peaceful experience.
At the end of Mass, we clear the altar and set-up the Missal and Lectionary for the following week’s celebration.
