Does it seem a small thing that the God of Israel has chosen you from among all the people of Israel to be near him as you serve in the Lord’s Tabernacle and to stand before the people to minister to them? [Numbers 16:9]
One of the very earliest ministries in the Catholic Church, Ushers or Hospitality are aware of the ongoing needs of the entire assembly during mass, helping participants to find their way, feel welcome and be cared for. There is more than taking up the collection, directing the reception of Eucharist, or passing out bulletins. These ministers will assist worshipers who become ill, assist police and paramedics as needed. They will perform their ministry with care and diplomacy, endeavoring to keep order while enabling everyone to feel at home.
