Altar Servers

The Ministry of Altar Server is one of our oldest ministries in the Church, but yet a ministry performed by some of our youngest members. The responsibilities entrusted to these young people are significant to our celebration of the Eucharist, not just on Sundays but every day of the week and also at weddings and funerals. Without Altar Servers, our liturgies would be less celebratory and solemn. These Ministers of the Altar provide dignity and flow to our celebration of each Mass. Someone wanting to be an Altar Server must be in the fifth grade or older, and attend the Faith Formation program. Adults are also welcome to be trained as acolytes.
