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, carrying the processional cross, carrying the incense, holding the books, and a variety of other tasks during the service. They do this by performing their duties with honor and respect, reflecting the true presence of Christ at the Mass.

This ministry helps to develop a sense of participation in parish life and a love for the church’s liturgical life, while growing closer to God in one’s own life. It also offers an opportunity to understand the rewards of service toward others and their community.

Adult Altar Servers
Adult men of the parish serve for funerals and other occasions where needed.

Student Altar Servers

Student Altar Servers are a group of our parish Day School and Parish School of Religion students who are trained to serve during our Parish liturgies. Training consists of a series of practical lessons with the coordinator. The purpose is to instill in them a strong sense of reverence for the Eucharist and service to the priest and assembly during liturgies. Training sessions are held in September through November beginning at Grade 5. Commitment is from Grade 5 through Grade 8.
