Altar Servers assist the Priest in the conduct of the Mass and other liturgical celebrations.

Altar servers help the priest and deacon during the liturgy, especially the Mass. They have several supporting duties to carry out, such as carrying the processional cross and candles, carry the incense and thurible, holding the missal for the priest celebrant when he is not at the altar, assisting the priest when he receives the gifts from the people, washing the hands of the priest before the prayer over the gifts, removing items from the altar during communion, and assisting the priest celebrant and the deacon as necessary. Altar servers wear the alb or the surplice during a liturgy.

This an important and helpful ministry available to boys and girls in the seventh grade or older who demonstrate a willingness to serve.

Altar Server Training: The parish conducts training and refreshers periodically during the year for our Altar Servers.

Altar Server Schedule: The schedule is sent by our Ministry Scheduler Pro program.  You can download the App from your App store.


Are you interested in becoming an Altar Server? It's flexible to fit your busy schedule. You may choose the times and dates of the Mass you serve.

It's convenient to change your schedule if something pops up. You can notify us through our new App if your schedule changes and you are unable to serve. When you are able, you can pick up Masses that others can't serve.

It's a great learning experience. Mass becomes more meaningful and teaches responsibility.
