Youth Altar Servers
Here is where our youth can get involved in ministry! Altar Servers assist the Presider (Priest) at Mass and help to make the Liturgy flow reverently and smoothly. All items needed for the celebration are made available at the appropriate moment. Servers share that it helps them to stay engaged in the Mass and that it makes Mass more interesting (they also say it makes it feel like Mass is shorter).
Boys and girls who are at least 10 years of age and have received First Communion and who have completed the 4th grade are encouraged to consider serving. Training is provided. Serving is always done in a group, and new servers are eased into their ministry: as their comfort level increases, their responsibilities increase. The Servers give a powerful witness to members of our Faith community. Parents, Guardians, or Grandparents should inform their children of this opportunity to serve, and support them in this ministry.
