At St. Patrick’s Catholic Church we have an amazing Altar Servers’ Ministry. We offer an opportunity to children who have made their First Holy Communion to be a very active part of the Sunday Eucharistic Celebration. Our Altar Servers are privileged to volunteer their time serving Our Lord at the weekend Masses as well as at other Liturgies such as Christmas and the Easter Triduum, the administration of the Holy Sacraments and at the school Masses celebrated monthly at J.J. O’Neill Catholic School. Our Altar Servers assist our Priests during the Mass and actively participate by listening, singing and praying with congregation.
We offer a training program for the children when they first sign up to serve, including guidelines for behaviour, duties and attire. Our newest recruits are paired with an experienced Altar Server during Mass until they are able to perform their duties independently.
We offer our Altar Servers a bi-monthly meeting and fun night, where they learn about their faith, pray together, play games and enjoy friendships and good food.
We look forward to continuing the development of our Altar Servers’ Ministry, as we all grow in faith, loving and serving Our Lord.
