Altar Servers

 

Altar Servers take the responsibility for freeing the presider from various details so he may give full attention to presiding. The various tasks include: assisting with the sacramentary when the presider needs to read from it; preparing the altar table with the vessels of bread and wine; taking care of candles, incense, and cross. The main task of the Altar Server is to model liturgical prayer with grace and reverence and enter whole-heartedly into the public worship of the community. Those wishing to be Altar Servers must be in the 5th grade or above and able to attend training sessions.
