Altar Servers (Adult and Youth)

Men, women and children in grades 4 through high school who have made their First Communion are eligible to assist the priest and deacon as altar servers during liturgical celebrations. The altar server presents or arranges the vessels, the Sacramentary and other items used in celebration of the sacred rites. Those interested in this ministry should understand the privilege they have been given to serve as the Lord’s Supper. Besides assisting at the weekend liturgies, young servers are called upon to minister during special liturgies and functions in the church such as weddings, Stations of the Cross, and others. Training classes for young servers are held in the church starting in November for 4-5 weeks. Adult servers assist at funerals and Masses during the week. Training for adult servers is on an as needed basis. Please contact Fr. Yetter if interested.
