Our altar servers attend the sacred vessels used by the priests during the Eucharist. Their knowledge of the order of Mass is what enables worship to flow smoothly. Vested in cassock and surplice while bearing cross, candles, and even incense, their presence adds grace and elegance to the liturgy.
This ministry allows boys and girls to experience the Mass up close. As Church can be a puzzling and restless experience for children in the pews, this ministry is a opportunity for them to enjoy the liturgy by taking a significant part.
Children interested must be in 4th grade or higher and must have received their first Eucharist.
