Thank You, Student Leaders: Altar Servers

Not only do students attend mass, they participate in it.

Once they have received the Sacrament of First Communion and have completed third grade, students can train to be an altar server. Responsibilities range from carrying in the cross or candles; holding the book of prayers for Father; setting up the altar for the consecration; cleaning up after communion and generally helping the priest keep the Mass running smoothly.

As altar servers gain experience, they’re able to serve at special religious services, including Confirmation, weddings and funerals. The commitment is 1-2 Saturdays or Sunday a month and a daily mass 1-2 times per month. The program runs year-round.
