“… in the liturgy, you are much more than simple ‘helpers of the parish priest.’ Above all, you are servers of Jesus Christ, of the eternal High Priest. Thus, you, altar servers, are called in particular to be young friends of Jesus. Be determined to go deeper and to cultivate this friendship with him. You will discover that in Jesus you have found a true friend for life.”
– St. Pope John Paul II (1920-2005 A.D.), General Audience, the 1000th of his Pontificate, August 1, 2001
Children of the parish, 4th – 12th Grades, who are commissioned altar servers by the pastor, may assist the priests at Holy Mass and other liturgies. Proper training must be completed prior to the Commissioning of Altar Servers on the Solemnity of Christ the King.
