The parish office will call (if possible) the people who gave the donation for the intention of weekend Masses. When you arrive at Mass, there is a sign on the table with the Bread and Wine that says Offertory Gifts, set up by the Narthex of the church. Please turn this sign over – meaning that you are present and ready to bring forth the gifts to the altar. You can also tell an usher if one is near. If the sign is not turned down, the ushers will ask for a volunteer or take them down themselves.

When the collection is being taken up, please make your way to the table to be ready to take the gifts forward to the altar where the deacon or presider will accept t hem on behalf of the entire congregation.
