The Ministry of Altar Servers is a group of boys and girls - fourth 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 of worship and prayer.
All interested children are invited to become involved in this important ministry. Orientation classes and review classes are held at various times during the year. There are several adults who volunteer as altar servers as well and are very welcome to become involved. Servers are needed for our 16 daily masses as well as our five weekend masses, weddings, funerals, Solemnities and other special occasions.
