Altar Servers enhance the quality of liturgical celebrations by assisting the priest in various ways during the Mass and by taking part in liturgical processions. A server can expect to be scheduled to serve at weekend Masses about once or twice a month. Not only does the Altar Server offer an extremely important service in the Liturgy, but it is also a wonderful way for young people to learn and understand the elements that comprise the Mass. Boys and girls in the 5th grade or higher and who have received their first Holy Communion are eligible. New altar server training begins Thursday, January 9th, in the Parish Hall and continues for four additional weeks on Thursday evenings from 6:30pm to 8:00 pm in the Church. Each new server must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to the first session on January 9th. New servers are expected to attend all five sessions. Additional training dates are January 16, 23, 30, and February 6. All sessions are from 6:30 – 8:00pm.
