Altar Servers play a special part in our worship by assisting the priest during Mass, by being a role model for younger members in the community, and by being a reminder that all of us should participate in the Mass as best as we are able to.
It also gives the Altar Servers a unique perspective on what goes on during the Mass by giving them an up close view of everything going on. Altar Servers often say that they are much more engaged with Mass because they are right in the middle of everything.
If you're interested in becoming an Altar Server, let us know. More recently, we have begun to offer Altar Server training for our religious education students to help them understand the Mass in a whole new way.
