Shrine Usher Ministry

Since 1982, the Knights of Columbus have served the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception through the Shrine Usher M inist ry. This ministry is a Supreme Council Program overseen by the State Deputies of Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia .

This is a most rewarding ministry. As an usher, you will welcome the congregation entering the Basilica for Mass, be attentive at the Processional, assist with the collection prior to the Offertory, be a Guardian of the Blessed Sacrament at Communion and at the conclusion of Mass be attentive at the Recessional.

Please consider serving with reverence and dignity as an usher with the Shrine Usher Ministry.

For more info contact Patrick McAleer , Chairman pmckofc@gmail.com 

Please pass this request on to another brother knight and to  your council newsletter editor.
