Altar Servers

Our Mission is to assist the Priest in the conduct of the Mass and other liturgical celebrations. For the October 2009 edition of "The Catholic Server w/schedule"... click here! Want to be an Altar Server? This ministry is open to young men and women after receiving their First Communion. Altar Servers must obtain parental permission, and agree to comply with a dress code when serving. Altar servers are assigned to assist the clergy at Sunday, Holyday, wedding and funeral liturgies. Responsibilities include:

Carrying the incense container (thurifer)

Lighting the altar candles

Extinguishing the altar candles

Bearing the cross in entrance procession

Bearing the candles in entrance procession

Assisting with holy water, water, wine and offertory gifts at Mass

Occasionally, Altar Servers will have the opportunity to serve the Bishop as miter or staff-bearer. Serving at the altar is a big responsibility. The clergy count on your showing up when scheduled. They count on your mature attitude while serving. They expect you to be dressed neatly and to arrive early. They appreciate a reverent attitude in all that you do.

If you feel that you would like to serve the Church by being an Altar Server, please come by the Church office for more information.
