Vergers add an important ceremonial and symbolic element to a church service. They remind us that a service works best with order and rhythm. They help the clergy, freeing them from having to worry about every single element of a service, like getting people lined up for a procession. A verger leads the liturgical procession by setting a rhythm and, symbolically, pointing a way forward. If you feel called to participate in liturgy by leading the way as a verger, contact Liturgical and Lay Reader Coordinator Bob Linehan at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
