Altar Serving

Altar Servers perform a very important and much needed role in liturgical services. This role includes assisting the presider so that the liturgy can be conducted with grace and reverence. It enables the presider to focus on leading all present through word, prayer and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. The activities of the altar server include carrying lighted candles, holding books, vessels and other liturgical items, assisting during Baptisms, etc. The humble service of the altar server helps to eliminate distractions and enables other ministers to simplify their motions during liturgical services.
