Sign-Up Instructions if Invitations are left in each pew before each Mass: Sign-Up Instructions given at Mass Version 2
Advance Instructions for Sign-Up Volunteers/Ushers if they will place and replenish copies of the Invitations at the end of each pew before each Mass: Sign-Up Volunteer/Ushers Instructions version 2
