Before Mass, ushers greet and welcome Mass attendees at the church entranceways. During Mass, ushers sit at the back of the church and participate fully in the service. When late -comers arrive, ushers help minimize disruptions by asking them to momentarily stand by during the readings and the homily and then seat them. During Communion they assist with the Communion procession. Once the Mass is over, ushers stand by the church doors to distribute the weekly bulletin. They also straighten up all the pews, including collecting trash, putting hymnals in their proper places, picking up articles left behind and raising kneeling benches.
