“Just so, the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve…” Matthew 20:28
The primary role of an Altar server is to assist the priest in the celebration of the liturgy during Mass. This involves presenting or arranging vessels and other items used in the celebrations. As members of the assembly who are often visible to all, altar servers also model good liturgical participation by actively joining in the hymns, prayers and responses of the liturgy, and by sitting, standing, or kneeling at the appropriate times.
Must be in 4th—12th grade and regularly attend Mass.
Must be a baptized member of the Catholic Church and have already received First Holy Eucharist.
Must be willing to participate fully as a member of the liturgical assembly.
Must have parental permission to serve and their support to get you to Masses on time.
Training to become an altar server is held usually twice a year, early fall and late spring. Information about altar server training will be sent home through St. Vincent’s School and through the religious formation classes. It is also published in the bulletin.
