Ushers
Church ushers are missionaries for the church for they perpetuate the spirit throughout the congregation. They see that the church is in proper condition to receive parishioners; they see that hymnals, the Book of Common Prayer, church literature, collection envelopes, and other items for the congregation are in their proper places. The usher meets the people with a pleasant smile, a warm welcome, and directs them to comfortable seats. They take up offerings during the service and perform other assigned duties. Ushers are always needed.  To volunteer, contact Richard Csajko: 516/799-5347.
