Boys and girls in grades 5, 6, 7 and 8 can serve the holy people of God during Mass. When we join in the Mass, we remember Jesus and give thanks and praise for all the good things that God does for us. Altar servers assist the whole church in praying. They carry the crucifix and candles at Mass. They prepare the altar so that bread and wine can become the Body and Blood of Christ! The priests and the other ministers who help us celebrate the Mass rely on the altar servers so that we can all receive Christ through the Word of God and through the Eucharist.
Servers are trained after school or in the evening. Current altar servers receive follow-up training. Older altar servers can become acolytes, or head altar servers, and lead the younger servers at Mass!

We will do training together--new and old. This helps the new servers learn quicker. We'll sign up 20 servers per session, and split into two groups of 10 each.
