Starting in 5th grade our children get to participate in the Altar Server program. This is an opportunity for our children to grow spiritually as they serve Our Lord.
What is an Altar Server?
Altar Servers carry the Cross, the processional candles, and hold the book for the priest celebrant when he is not at the Altar. They also carry the incense and censer, and present the bread, wine, and water to the priest in preparation for the gifts, or assist him when he receives the gifts. They are responsible for washing the hands of the priest and assist the priest celebrant as necessary.
