“Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for Him” (Matthew 3:1-3).
Ushers are responsible to ensure things run orderly and smoothly during the Mass, while also attending to individual needs. These are the people who help with collections in church. They see that people are seated and arrange for any special needs. They direct the congregation to Communion.
Ushers should arrive 15 minutes before Mass. At the end of Mass, they hand out Bulletins, tidy up the pews, and make sure everything is in order in the church before they leave. Training is generally given on the job. Ushers may normally choose the Mass time that works best for them.
