Altar Servers

These young men and women are trained to assist the priest during the celebration of the Eucharist and at weddings and funerals in the parish. They are usually from the upper elementary grades of both the School and Religious Education program. Sometimes called "acolytes," servers carry the processional cross and candles, hold the sacred books for the presider and assist with the gifts at the Presentation during the Eucharist. Recruitement and training of servers take place in the spring of each year. Servers are assigned to Masses on a rotating basis. All children of the parish are encouraged to join the Mass servers so they can learn to appreciate and participate more fully in the Eucharist.
