Usher vs. Collector

What’s the difference? Well, saying an Usher is only a Collector, is like saying a Flight Attendant only hands out drinks. Being an Usher is participating in a ministry. It is taking some responsibility for the safety and comfort of the parishioners, thus allowing them to participate more fully in the Mass. If you would like to learn more, stop by the Collaborative Center for one of our upcoming trainings. We have plenty of collectors; but we desperately need a few good men or women to stand tall and say, “I want to be an Usher!”
