Ushering is an opportunity to serve God by serving His people, and is a marvelous way to actively and faithfully participate at St. Boniface. Ushers see to it that the services flow smoothly and orderly, thus heightening the experience of receiving God’s Word. Ushering provides a wonderful way to begin to grow and to continue to serve in a very important role for the church. Good ushers are “people-persons” who make people coming into the church feel welcome and appreciated.
You are personally invited to become an usher for our parish. Please consider this an opportunity to serve the Lord while attending Mass. If you can help, please call Al Schwanda at 251-2360 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Lord, in your love you gather your people this day, help me to serve them in a Christ-like manner, even as your son Jesus served those who gathered about him.
Make me prayerful, patient, helpful and understanding, and may I radiate the joy that faith brings as I serve their needs.
Give me your strength to support my fellow ministers.
May all who assemble to celebrate our common faith in the risen savior be glad of heart for being here
and for having encountered your son in one another, in our priest,
at the tables of the book and the bread, and through the ministry of ushers like me.
I ask this in Jesus’ name.
