4th Sunday of Ordinary Time / Septuagesima Sunday
Last week you might have seen the sad footage of pro-abortion protestors interrupting Holy Mass at the Cathedral of St. Joseph in Columbus, Ohio, on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade.
Our ushers certainly noticed it.
Over the course of the last few years, with the encourage-ment of the Diocese of Arlington, the usher crews have been paying attention to more and more aspects of parishioner safety. In the ushers room is a First Aid Kit, an AED (Automated Electronic Defibrillator) as well as masks and gloves. Fainting is the most common incident that happens in church. Our ushers have always been good at summoning medical help, both by calling 911 and in facilitating the as-sistance that can be rendered by nurses and doctors already on the scene.
