The role of the Altar Server is to assist the Priest in the celebration of the liturgy during Mass. Serving at the altar is both an honor and a privilege. This is a rewarding ministry way that helps young people deepen their faith and understanding of the liturgy.

Some of the Altar Server responsibilities include:

  • Caring for the altar candles
  • Bearing the cross and candles in the entrance procession
  • Assisting with holy water, water, wine and offertory gifts at Mass

The Altar Server ministry is open to 4th-12th grade boys and girls, of this parish, who have celebrated First Holy Communion.
