Becoming an Altar Server is not only an honor but an important part in the offering of the Mass. Servers assist the priest and congregation in the celebration of the Eucharist, which is the cornerstone of our faith. Participants must be in 5th grade or older and attend All Souls Catholic Parish at either St. Ann or St. James. At present, this ministry takes place at the St. Ann site, but could expand to St. James if there is interest. The program is open to both boys and girls and training is provided.
Altar Servers are scheduled to serve weekend and holiday Masses and may also have the opportunity to serve weddings and funerals as they occur. You may indicate a preferred Mass time and exclusion dates. Reverence, dependability, and a willingness to learn are the only requirements.
