Greeters and Ushers

Those who serve as ushers and greeters are a special breed: welcoming, warm, always ready to help or to answer questions. They are the first people that worshipers meet when they arrive for our weekend liturgies and are the ones who send them on their way with a smile at the end of Mass. 
Greeters and ushers help everyone who comes to St. Joseph Community to feel welcome and free to celebrate. They assist with the collection and help distribute the bulletins after Mass. They invite a family to present the gifts of bread and wine at the Offertory. They also provide the invaluable service of being "point persons" in case of emergencies. 
Ministers usually serve at the same Mass each weekend, and therefore, get to know who are parishioners and who are visitors to our community, thus sharing hospitality on all levels. 
These ministers are also asked at times to serve at special liturgies, as their own schedule and preference allows. View Guidelines here.  For more information, please contact Anna Rossi (510) 814-1038 or
