Altar Serving

The Ministry of Altar Servers is a group of boys and girls fifth grade and up – assisting in the parish liturgical celebrations. Altar servers assist the Priest in the celebration of the Mass so the liturgy can be conducted with grace and reverence. They assist the celebrant at the chair and at the altar by lighting the candles, dressing the altar, carrying the processional cross, carrying the incense, holding the books, and a variety of other tasks during the liturgy. They do this by performing their duties with honor and respect, reflecting the true presence of Christ at the Mass. It also offers an opportunity for Altar Servers to assist the presider during other liturgies such as weddings and funerals.

Mission: To involve young children in serving Jesus by assisting the Priest at Mass and other liturgies
