Boys and girls in grades 5 through 8 may serve in this ministry. Servers carry the cross and candles in procession, serve as book bearer for the priest/deacon and assist with others duties at the altar. Training is required before service begins. Additional training is required for serving at weddings and funerals.
Policies and procedures for altar servers are outlined in the Altar Server Handbook.
