Church Ushers Corps
St. John Armenian Church Usher Corps
Each week on Sunday mornings we are blessed to have dedicated individuals, known as the Ushers Corps, to help guide our worshippers into church as they arrive. They help us keep the good order of our house of worship so that everyone who enters and exits is greeted and guided properly.
The Corps is comprised of several teams who serve alternately on a designated Sunday, helping with the lines when Holy Communion is to be distributed, passing out veils to women who wish to wear them, guiding people back to their pews, greeting worshippers with a “good morning,” giving them a bulletin with a Sunday smile certainly helps make our Divine Liturgy even more ‘divine’ as God touches them through the good graces of the Ushers.
The Ushers Corps is one of many auxiliary groups that help the pastor by giving guidance, inspiration, sharing good will and helping uplift the spirits of our faithful. Members of the Ushers Corps can be identified by the burgundy blazers they wear and special name tags.
