Here at St. James-in-the-Hills we offer to both men and women the opportunity to join in the ministry of being an Usher.
This service requires a commitment of one Sunday a month at our 8:00 A.M., 9:30 A.M., or Spanish service at 11:30 A.M. Duties include assisting at the door and distributing the service bulletin. Ushers also direct parishioners to available seating, etc., and respond to the questions that visitors and others may ask. The usher carries forward the elements (the bread and the wine) to the altar at each service, when necessary, and collects the Offerings by handling the Alms Basins. A light clean up at the end of each service goes quickly and helps to keep the pews neat and the books well arranged for use at the next service.
We hope you will consider joining us at St. James in this important ministry of the Church. If you are interested, please take time to talk with Jim George.
