An opportunity for an active role in the Mass

Girls and boys who have received their First Holy Communion are encouraged to participate as an Altar Server. Altar servers are guided as they support the priest in various tasks during Mass. In this way, an altar server can have an active role in the Mass and experience a sense of belonging.

Parish training for altar servers is provided. The next scheduled training session for Altar Servers is from 5:30pm to 5:45pm on Thursday, 8 September 2022.
