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.
~ Saint John Paul II
About Altar Servers
The primary role of the Altar Serer is to assist the priest in the celebration of the liturgy during Mass. This is done through specific actions and by setting an example to the congregation by active participation in the liturgy by their actions, singing of hymns, responses of the people, looking alert and sitting or standing at the appropriate times. This ministry is one of the most helpful services that young people can perform in the parish and is an opportunity to learn more about the church and our worship of God.
