Greeters and Ushers


Our Ministry greets people as they enter the Church. We distribute the missalettes, weekly bulletins and assist congregants in finding seating. Greeters also stay after the Masses to wish the people a good day, and make sure that no one is left feeling isolated or unwelcomed. 

For more information or to get involved please contact Lynn Sherman at

This Ministry plays an important part for the Parish in preparing the Church prior to Mass.

The duties of an usher are to:

  • Prepare the Offertory table at the back of the Church for the Mass.
  • Ask parishioners to bring the gifts of wine and the host to the priest at the Offertory of the Mass.
  • Ushers assist with the collections during the Mass.
  • Tidy-up the pews after Mass is complete.

If you are interested in learning more about becoming an usher and volunteering your time in preparation for Mass at St. Lawrence O’Toole, please contact Deacon Mark Shkreli: 917-335-5607 or at
