Altar Server’s role in the Church.
Altar Servers offer service to God and the community by assisting the priest during mass.
Responsibilities of Altar Servers include:
- Lighting and extinguishing the altar candles
- Bearing the cross and candles during the entrance procession
- Assisting the priest during the Liturgy of Eucharist, as instructed.
In addition to liturgical service, altar serving is also a wonderful way for our children to advance in spiritual life that is centered on the Eucharist and to grow in vocational awareness. Servers participate in the Sacred Liturgy with their own work that contributes to the Work of the Faithful and the prayer of the Church and thus their service help build up the Body of Christ. In this way, altar serving is a serious ministry that requires commitment, reliability, and a certain amount of dedicated time, so it is carried out worthily.
