The Ministry of the Altar Server invites our children and young adults to assist the priest and deacon during the Liturgy. These liturgies may be Sunday and daily Masses, weddings, funerals, Stations of the Cross, Benediction and Holy Days of Obligation. Servers will be trained and undergo a period of serving with other more experienced servers until they are familiar and comfortable with the various positions. In addition, each server is given a set of written instructions during training and parents are urged to assist them in learning their duties.
Students in the Public schools, Catholic schools or those being home schooled are invited to join. With the exception of those attending Catholic schools, they must be enrolled in the CCE or being home schooled in an approved religious education curriculum.
The minimum age of an applicant is those who have received the First Holy Communion. All servers must attend two meetings held each year.
To sign up for Altar Server Training, please call the Parish Rectory at 856-456-0052 or Deacon David Murnane at 856-853-5980.
