Serving at the altar is an important and responsible ministry that enhances prayer. Fourth graders and older are welcome to participate in the Eucharistic Liturgy as altar servers. They will be trained to understand the structure and prayers of the Mass.

As an Altar Server, one will:

  • Carry the cross, and the candles in the procession 
  • Assist the priest by holding the Missal for prayers  
  • Set the altar

Currently, servers are part of our 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. Masses only.
