Altar Servers

Let the children come to me.

(Luke 18:16)

This is one way you, the youth of our parish, can come and serve the Lord by becoming an Altar Server.

What does an Altar Server do?

The two main duties of a server are to assist the priest and deacon during the celebration of Mass and help the people pray by your example.
