What is our duty to God? Our duty is to believe and trust in God... and to set aside regular times for worship, prayer, and the study of God’s ways.

Ushers

Contact: Dave Hoffstetter

The Usher Ministry is one of hospitality and assistance, particularly for newcomers but also for members in need. Men, women and young adults perform whatever usher duties are necessary every Sunday to help parishioners; being mindful to promote a sense of reverence, to limit disruptions and to be prepared to assist with health emergencies, should they arise. You will always see a smile on the face of the usher as they truly enjoy what they do and their service to St. Aidan's.
