Mass Greeters

Mass Greeters are available outside the church before all weekend Masses. They present a welcoming hand, warm heart, and a friendly face to all parishioners and visitors who enter The Basilica of Saint Peter. This ministry is open to all age groups.



The mission of the ushers is one of hospitality, accomplished through welcoming parishioners and visitors to the liturgy with sincerity and enthusiasm. Responsibilities include assisting visitors and parishioners in finding a seat for the Mass service, distributing and collecting the orders of worship, ​gathering the gifts of the people and distributing the weekly bulletin.
