Altar serving is a beautiful way to participate in the celebration of the Mass. Altar servers are respectful and reverent assistants who take honor in serving the Lord at Mass. Boys and girls, 4th grade and up, are eligible to participate as altar servers. They may continue to serve through high school and later. After completion of training sessions, which are required and offered periodically throughout the year, they serve at Sunday Masses and at special liturgies, as well as at weddings and funerals.
