We all contribute to the climate of our church, but ushers and greeters are trend-setters and models for the congregational environment. The ministry of ushers and greeters plays a vital role in the hospitality and welcome ministry at Our Lady of the Lake Parish. Too often ushers are thought of as "the people who take up the collection." While that may be the most visible part of being an usher, it is not the most important. You are responsible for putting the welcoming arms of the church around the shoulders of all who come to worship. You promote a climate of friendship, acceptance, and surrounding love and enable the warmth of respect and knowledge that we are all children of God. If you would like to join this ministry, please contact the parish rectory 216-486-0850 or email Nicole Hufford at firstname.lastname@example.org. We need help at Sunday Liturgies.
