Ushers 

Ushers welcome members and newcomers each Sunday at all worship services and at special Diocesan events. No experience is necessary; training is provided.

Keeping an eye out for visitors, ushers ensure that no one feels like a stranger at the Cathedral. Teams are scheduled on a rotating basis.
