One of the most important things that parents can do for their child is to help them grow in their faith life.
There are so many different things that this entails: praying with your child, attending Mass with your child,
sharing with them your faith relationship with God, and supporting their own desires in acting on their faith.
Being an altar server is a special and unique ministry through which you can help spread the word and the
love of Christ through your actions and words.
The primary role of the altar server is to assist the priest in the celebration of the liturgy during Mass. This is done through specific actions and by setting an example to the congregation through your active participation in the liturgy.
In this way, your child can worship, honor, and glorify God with his/her whole being during the celebration of Mass. The Alter Server ministry during Mass will help others, including the priest, to worship God. It is not difficult to be an altar server, but there are some important things that he/she must know and remember.
Our parishes offer Alter Server Training to provide training and to answers to all questions you may have about this ministry. All boys and girls of our parish who have received First Holy Communion may become an Altar Server.
Being an altar server is a wonderful way for a child to be an active part of their faith.
If your child is interested in becoming an alter server, please call the rectory
