God calls each of us in special ways to share our gifts and talents during the Liturgy. One of the ministries open to young people of our parish who are in the 5th grade and up is the Ministry of Altar Server.
Just as we have teens and adults involved in our parish community as Lectors, Greeters, Hospitality, Choir and Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, so too, there is a need for dedicated Altar Servers.
This special ministry is very important to praying and celebrating well as a community. Take some time to ask yourself if you are being called to serve God and your parish community in this special way.
- Must be in fifth grade or above.
- Have a sincere love for God and for the Church.
- Attend Mass each Sunday.
- Can make a commitment to serve weekday and weekend Masses (usually scheduled twice a month).
- Will have the support and cooperation of your parent/guardian.
The training is for both new altar servers as well as a "refresher" for those that have previously committed to be an Altar Server.
Please sign-up below for a date that fits best with your schedule. If you choose a school day, students will be escorted to the Church after school for the training. Parents should pick up their child at 3:30 PM (or 5:00 PM on 9/21) at the Church.
