USHERS                    

John Rodriguez, “Outstanding Volunteer”

John Rodriguez is nominated as the volunteer for the Usher Ministry. He has served in this ministry for some 10 plus years. John has a very gentle spirit about him. On more than one occasion I have seen John take time to visit with parishioners and listen with genuine concern for whatever they have approached him about. It is not just about taking up the collection or passing out bulletins. He is always more than willing to help out when asked. He signs up for additional Usher duties during the Christmas and Ash Wednesday schedule. Additionally, John made a commitment to help in various capacities on the day of the Relics of Maria Goretti Event at St. Monica on November 3, 2015. This included serving off-site in the morning, at a church parking lot, directing and boarding visitors on buses coming to St. Monica. And, later in the evening, John signed up to help with Usher duties inside the church, with the multitudes of visitors that came to view St. Maria Goretti. John exemplifies what it means to have a servant’s heart.

It is with pride that John is recognized for his service to the Usher Ministry.
