Requirements

  • Received the Sacrament of First Holy Communion, and is currently at or above the 5th grade academic year.
  • Possess a level of maturity which makes the server comfortable working on the altar in front of the church audience.
    Note: this is up to the parent’s discretion. We will not turn away a volunteer once they complete the training.
  • Complete a 90 minute training session which are held at various times throughout the year.
  • Willingness to commit to enriching the experience of parishioners by performing all the functions described with a joyful heart.
  • Attend Mass regularly. We ask for a commitment of one serving assignment per month, which is important in the retention of serving tasks and procedures.
  • Dress in a modest and respectful manner.

Training

Formal training sessions are conducted which cover all aspects of the ministry. Lead servers are assigned to each mass and they provide “on the job” guidance and training as the new server gains experience on the altar. Watch the bulletin for the next training opportunities.
