The ministry of Abbey ushers is one of greeting and welcome, hosting and hospitality, to the regular and visiting participants at the Abbey’s liturgies. It is conducted with the same spirit as that extended to invited guests at a home. Beyond seating and distribution of programs, ushers attempt to anticipate and meet the physical and informational needs of the assembly with confidence, calm and reassurance.
