The altar server ministry is seeking volunteers. Any children of the parish that have received first holy communion are eligible to serve. A training for interested servers will take place on Sun., August 28 at 12:30pm. Returning servers that would like a refresher course are also encouraged to attend the training.

The training will include instruction on the Mass and its parts and meaning, the various objects used in the liturgy, and the various functions of the server during the Mass and other liturgical celebrations. Servers carry the cross, light the candles, assist the priest when he is not at the altar, and assist with the preparation of the gifts. The altar server ministry is a great way for your child to deepen his or her faith and gain a better understanding of the liturgy.

The altar server program typically has about 20-30 volunteers that rotate through the weekend masses. Each member usually serves at least once per month, and sometimes more depending on scheduling and availability.

Please RSVP for the training and direct all questions about this ministry to Claire Hegarty at or at 404-849-4228.
