Medically-Trained Parishioners:  Any medically trained personnel (doctors, nurses, EMTs) willing to make themselves known at Mass, please contact the head usher before the start of Mass. As time goes on, and the names and faces are more familiar, this action will become either unnecessary or more routinely accomplished.  You have the thanks of all those attending Mass for both your presence and potential assistance, and the improved safety environment within our church.
