Altar Serving is a privilege. We are blessed with servers that are both young and learning to serve as well as adults that are more experienced. Since we have experienced servers we are able to assist with Solemnities such as Easter, Christmas, Corpus Christi and Our Lady of Guadalupe.
We have both Servers and Sr. Servers. Our Sr. Servers help mentor the servers on the Altar so they are able to observe up close and see from the Altar perspective what is expected and what is to be learned.
We also have a group of experienced adult servers who serve at the Latin Masses and the Missa Cantata celebrations.
All ages and experience levels are encouraged. We believe that serving not only is a privilege but a way to be closer to Christ in the sacrifice of the Mass.
