What does an Altar Server do?
The two main duties of a server are to assist the priest and deacon during the celebration of Mass and help the people pray by your example.
Who can become an Altar Server?
Anyone who is in the 3rd grade or older and has made their First Communion
During Mass an Altar Server will perform the following duties:
- Lead the Procession during Mass carrying either the Crucifix or the candles.
- Presents the Roman Missal to the Priest for the opening and closing prayers.
- Assist in setting and clearing the altar table.
- Carry candles during offertory procession.
- Assist the Priest in the Washing of the Hands.
- Ringing of the bells during the preparation of the Eucharist.
- Leads the Recession out of the Church carrying either the Crucifix or candles.
Being a server means serving God and God’s people at Mass. As servers give themselves to help the priest and people worship better, they also receive God’s help and blessing. Thank you for showing interest in this true gesture of love for God.
Training is held once a year. The training date will be announced in the bulletin and on this website.
