The Ushers/Greeters ministry is a vital part of the worship service. Its purpose is to ensure that all visitors are made to feel welcome at Saint Sebastian’s by-the-Sea  They also see that parishioner’s needs are met, that portions of the service flow smoothly, and that the church is left in good condition for the next service.

The role of the Usher/Greeter is very important to parishioners and visitors.  They make everyone feel welcome when they enter the church, help them find seats, and ensure that everyone is informed of what is expected during the service (through the use of the bulletin).  They represent the entire congregation in the offering of bread, wine and monetary contributions to the altar.  They also make certain that the church remains in good condition so that the next group of parishioners may enjoy their worship experience.

Ushering and Gr“Greeters are a vital part of the worship service. Their focus on Sunday’s is to welcome worshippers as they enter the church, hand out service bulletins, help them find their seats, answer questions, and provide other assistance as needed. They give out a welcome bag to first time visitors containing a gift and information about our church. Greeters also facilitate the movement of worshippers to the altar rail during Communion. After worship, they inspect the church to make sure that it is left in a clean, orderly condition.
