Altar Servers

 

Altar servers help the priest and the people assembled at Mass praise God as fully and joyfully as possible.
You assist your priest in a very special way during our liturgical celebrations. Your actions help to highlight the ceremony and rituals that are so much a part of the Mass that we celebrate. You show to those who come to church the importance and reverence you give for the vessels that are used in the Mass. As our altar servers you lead the procession of the Mass by carrying the cross and candles, hold the prayer book for the priest, and help to prepare the altar for communion. In a very special way you as altar server help to ensure that the Mass unfolds with grace and dignity.

Fr. Seejo, Lisa and Chris Wright, and I (Patty), are running a Youth altar server training session on:
Sunday, November 13th after the 10:30 a.m. mass. at noon to 1:30 p.m.
Any youth, grade 3 and older are welcome to join us!
This training is for our new servers, however, if you are not new and still want to attend to brush up on your serving skills you are most welcome to join us.
We will gather in the Mother of Peace room at noon. Have a light pizza lunch and then proceed upstairs in the church for an altar server training session.

You commitment for Altar serving would be once a month at the mass you and your family normally attend.

Your service is important. We want to make sure that everyone knows how to serve correctly.

Please let us know if you would like to altar serve!
Please email me: Patty at pcoenen@dol.ca to sign up for the training session.
We want to make sure we have enough pizza for all !
