Ushers, Stewards & Meet & Greet Team
We have a large team of ushers and stewards across the weekend Masses, who minister in their role of carrying out the offertory procession and collection, recording the annual parish Mass count, helping and guiding parishioners around the church every weekend and especially during our major celebrations during the course of the year. From Teresa of Avila: “Christ has no body now on earth but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours; Yours are the eyes through which to look out Christ’s compassion to the world; Yours are the feet with which he is to go about doing good; Yours are the hands with which he is to bless men now.”
We also have a group of young ‘Meet & Greet’ parishioners at our Sunday 10am Family Mass twice a month (1st & 3rd Sunday of the month) (Refer to Youth Section for more details) who welcome parishioners as they arrive or Mass, hand out the song sheets to the families; they are involved in the offertory procession of the gifts and occasionally are invited to proclaim the liturgy of the word and prayers of the faithful, as well as join in the singing with the families. We are looking for other members of the parish community who would be happy to be a part of the ‘Meet & Greet Team’ at our other Masses over the weekend.
If you feel this is something you would like to do for your parish and community and would like to know more about it involved, then please do get in touch with us at the parish office 020 8672 2179. Being that friendly face and smile to welcome our parishioners to Mass can make all the difference! All welcome.
