Altar Servers help facilitate our Eucharistic liturgies in a regular and reverent manner.
Serving at the altar during Mass is a special privilege. Altar Servers are close to the altar as they serve the priest, they carry the cross, they carry the light of Christ as the Gospel is proclaimed. Our altar servers wear the robe of baptism (the alb), which is a sign of their position in the community as baptized people. They hold the Book of the Prayers (the Roman Missal), and they assist the priest at the altar.
This ministry is open to anyone from children in primary school to adults. Being an Altar Server is a liturgical function, therefore one must be a baptized and a Eucharistic Catholic. It is out of one’s baptism into the Body of Christ that they are called to this ministry. Some Altar Servers serve well into their high school careers.
If you would like to join our team of altar servers, please contact the presbytery.
