The Good Shepherd Liturgy Commission plans and provides for the spiritual development of each member of the community through liturgical celebrations.
“Liturgical actions are not private actions but celebrations of the Church itself, which is the ‘sacrament of unity,’ namely, a holy people assembled and ordered under the bishops; therefore, liturgical actions pertain to the whole body of the Church and manifest and affect it, but they affect the individual members of the Church in different ways according to the diversity of orders, functions, and actual participation.”
(Canon No. 837, #1)

Greeters personally welcome those who come to worship, recognizing the presence of Christ in those they greet. They may also assist in distributing worship aids as needed.
Ushers welcome the stranger and friend, help people find seats in church, take up the collection and coordinate the presentation of the wine and bread, direct the Communion processions, and straighten the church after Mass. Ushers also keep an eye out for anyone in need of assistance and are knowledgeable about the church building, its facilities, and emergency procedures.
