Description: Serving as an acolyte/altar server is a service to the gathering of God’s people, the assembly, and it takes place during the worship of this assembly. The Acolyte/Altar Server serves at the altar and assists the priest and deacon. In particular, the acolyte/altar server prepares the altar and sacred vessels for the sacred liturgy and assists as a special minister of the Eucharist. The ministry of service of the acolyte should deepen the community’s sense of being the Body of Christ.
Meetings: Annual and periodically as needed
Activities: Training for new members.
The Acolytes/Altar Servers work closely with the Liturgy Planning Group and the Worship Committee.
