Altar Service Ministry

Altar servers assist the priest and deacon at liturgical celebrations.

The Ministry of altar service is open to all men, women and children in good standing in the Parish. The responsibilities usually begin 30 minutes before Mass. He/she is responsible for the preparation of the sacred vessels, the linens, the books, and any other items needed for the celebration of the Mass. The acolyte leads the entrance and recessional processions and serves the priest throughout the Mass. After Mass there is cleanup which normally takes about 15-30 minutes. This exceptionally rewarding ministry calls for a strong commitment to service.

Ministry of altar service offers children an excellent opportunity to develop a sense of reverence and to acquire familiarity with the Mass.
