After considerable discussion, it has been decided that responsibility for Reading and Ushering will be left for people to volunteer rather than having those lay participation tasks assigned. As well, IF YOU SIGN UP FOR THE TASK IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO FIND A REPLACEMENT SHOULD YOU BE UNABLE TO CARRY OUT YOUR TASK. After this Sunday (September 18th) the office will no longer assign Readers or Ushers, nor will it ensure that someone carries out these responsibilities. The tasks of Liturgical Assistant and Prayers of the People will still be assigned and if you are slated for one of these tasks, please do not find your own replacement. Replacements will be assigned through the office in order to keep to the rotation.
PLEASE DO NOT SIGN UP FOR MORE THAN ONE TASK FOR ANY GIVEN SUNDAY (i.e., if you are Liturgical Assistant, doing Prayers of the People, Reading or Ushering on a particular Sunday, do not put your name down for any other task that day)
The new roster is posted in the Church House. Please write your name for whatever Reading or Ushering task you chose to volunteer for.
