Tom Fitzgerald and grandson Charlie (Junior Usher)- Come volunteer with your son. 


The St. James Usher Ministry seeks to help the community of worshipers at St. James to experience a comfortable place where they may seek unity with the perfect sacrifice our Lord Jesus made for us on the cross. Ushers serve at the celebration of the Mass so everyone may feel the hospitality of our community while we ensure the convenience, comfort, safety and well-being of the congregation.

We seek able-bodied men and women, whether young or young at heart. We are also seeking a few family teams consisting of a parent and a young adult (middle school or high school age). Ushers are trained and initially work with an experienced usher. Scheduling is done with full consideration of everyone’s family, school and work schedules. We seek to maintain a routine schedule, but fill-in ushers are also needed.
