Does your child have a strong desire to be an Altar Server and serve at Mass? Will they be in 5th grade or higher in the Fall? They must be able to arrive 15 minutes before Mass, act with respect toward the Liturgy, and be alert and attentive.
If you are interested, pick up a copy of the Altar Server Commitment Form in church or click here to print a form, and return it to school or the parish office to be scheduled for training.
The next training session is after the 10:30 Mass on Sunday, April 29 for those who register ahead of time. This is also for those who have already been trained, but would like a refresher.
Our altar servers are young people wishing to be part of a team who work together for an orderly and prayerful celebration of Mass. Regular attendance at Sunday Mass is an important element and an expectation. Altar serving should be a joyful activity, and can draw both the server and their family into a deeper experience of their faith. Servers should plan to serve at least once a month. A schedule is generated for a month or two in advance, based on your preferences and specific date availability.
We are grateful for your service to this ministry as an altar server and look forward to working with you.
