Altar Servers (Acolytes) are an important part of the normal celebration of the Mass. During weekday Masses, two servers should assist the priest. On Sundays and other important celebrations, three to four servers are assigned to assist the priest and deacon.
Children who are in at least the third grade and have received their First Communion are encouraged to sign-up to be an altar server. Recruitment generally takes place twice a year, once in the Fall and again in the Spring.
New servers are put thru and extensive training program that includes an overview of the mass, the sacred vessels, and hands on practice.
