The altar servers assist at Liturgical celebrations. Their efficient and reverent service enables the celebrant to attend to his role while the liturgical actions unfold with calm, order and appropriate decorum. Altar servers consist of young boys and girls, men and women who are baptized members of the Catholic church and have received the Sacrament of First Communion. This ministry is a wonderful opportunity to develop leadership skills and self confidence from an early stage in life. Parents and children are encouraged to serve together. Training is provided and regular schedules are distributed.
