Altar Servers and MC’s
The young people of our parish are encouraged, beginning in the 5th Grade, to serve Christ and their Parish
by becoming Altar Servers. Open to boys and girls from fifth through eighth grade,
Altar Servers are trained by the parish clergy, and serve at Mass on Saturday evenings and on Sundays.
Altar Servers learn responsibility and appreciation for the various aspects of the Catholic Faith,
especially the Holy Mass and the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist.
Through this service, they grow in their relationship with their God and with their fellow parishioners
Liturgical Masters of Ceremonies are young men in high school and college
who coordinate the activities of Altar Servers during Mass, and more closely assist the priest celebrant and the deacon.
Typically, one MC is assigned to each weekend Mass.
The MCs serve together at the Altar during Holy Week and at particularly important and festive Masses during the year.
For more information on becoming an Altar Server or an MC, please contact the parish office at (203) 377-3133.
