The purpose is to assist with seating, greeting visitors to St. Thomas, and making them feel welcome at worship, and to assist the rector by directing traffic during communion, and to perform other tasks as needed.
The William J. Burke, Sr. Memorial Ushers are so named after former Accounting Warden, William J. Burke, Sr. who, along with Fr. Anderson, Jr. felt the need to relieve the Vestry from the responsibility of directing communion traffic. Ushers participate in all regular and special services.
Several also serve at funerals. Our ushers have also been asked to take part in special services at other churches and the Cathedral.
Meetings are held as called by the co-directors.
Who may join? Anyone, male or female in serving St. Thomas in this capacity.
