Altar Server Ministry 2019-2020
Welcome NEW and RETURNING altar servers! We will be having our MANDATORY annual fall altar server training this October and November. Father Chris and Father Ed have made several liturgical changes which will be rolled out during the training. Because of all the changes, all servers wanting to be on the 1Q2020 altar serving schedule must attend 1 training session.
Training will be divided into 2 groups - NEW and TENURED (>2 yrs altar serving) groups. TENURED altar servers will also be taught incense and other High Mass protocols. We will begin having High Masses at the SUN 1pm and SUN 5pm every couple months so that the Tenured altar servers can get more practice working with incense.
The Teen Leads, under the liturgical direction of the clergy, are comprised of Teens who have altar served an average of 5 years and represent all the local parochial and public high schools: St Francis, Jesuit, Christian Brothers, Laguna Creek, Cosumnes Oaks, Franklin High School as well as SEAS. They are the role models for the youth and will be present at all masses to lovingly and gently guide the altar servers as they reverently serve the clergy and parish during the mass.
Parents, please check in your child and fill out the altar server contact info sheet. (This info form also asks mass preference times and whether or not your child is interested in being a Teen Lead - minimum age is 14). We will also a have a quick 15 minute parent meeting while the Teen Leads and/or clergy train the altar servers.
