Ushers offer hospitality and oversee the orderly gathering of GOD'S people for worship.
Outreach is part of the Usher's ministry, since many times we are the first members of St. Francis that meet guests at our parish.
Ushers greet and assist worshipers and guests, provide outreach, pray for the congregation, insure the presentation of the elements by the congregates, count attendance, collect the offering, assist communicants at the altar rail and Celebrant as directed, while maintaining a comfortable environment.
Being an usher is a good ministry to learn about St. Francis and meet many of the members.
Our goal is to continue to offer the best service to St. Francis as we have in previous years.
“Jesus himself is always widening paths, not narrowing them. He invites everyone into his circle. He is always gathering children as well as random others to himself, welcoming the stranger, loving the unlovely, and healing the unacceptable. And then he leaves us here to be the body of Christ. May we be so.” From Forward Day by Day: August 7, 2019
Our Greeters strive to serve all God's children.
Like the Usher Ministry, Outreach is part of the Greeter ministry. Greeters welcome guests to St. Francis and assist them in answering questions and giving directions.
Greeters watch for opportunities to be of assistance for guests and work to make everyone feel welcome.
Greeters are available to answer the questions that people have about classes, groups, and childcare.
Greeters provide information brochures to guests or mention that informational brochures are in the pew for them to take.
Being a greeter is a good ministry to learn about St. Francis and meet many of the members.
