The purpose of the Altar Server Program is three-fold. First, it will clearly define Altar Server responsibilities and levels. Second, it defines the priest’s expectations regarding Altar Server conduct while serving at the altar. Lastly, it provides an opportunity for St. Patrick youth to better understand the Mass and different elements of the Church environment. Children who are in the 2nd grade and up and who have received First Holy Communion are eligible. Altar Server Training Sessions are listed the bulletin and on the Parish Calendar. The training will take approximately one hour.
