Altar Servers - Society of St. Dominic Savio
For those who are currently altar servers and those who are at least 12 years old
and have made their First Holy Communion, we are in the process of reorganizing
our illustrious group of altar servers. Charles Iner will be the point-of-contact
for this and he will be collecting information to assist in this task.
If you are interested in serving, please email to firstname.lastname@example.org the following
- Email address & phone number
- New or returning server
- Parent(s) name(s)
- Which Mass attended
Up-coming training sessions will be announced soon.
Altar servers assist the priest during Mass. Some of their duties may be
- Carry the cross during the processional
- Carry the processional candle(s)
- Hold the book for the priest celebrant when he is not at the altar
- Carry the incense and censer
- Present the bread, wine, and water to the priest during the preparation of the
gifts or assist him when he receives the gifts from the people
- Wash the hands of the priest
- Assist the priest celebrant and deacon as necessary.
This ministry is performed by boys and girls who have received the sacrament of
First Holy Communion. Teen and adult participation is highly encouraged.
A training class is held at least once a year for new participants.
