Altar servers

Altar servers assist the priest at the altar during the celebration of the Eucharist and as such have a special ministry in the Church. He/she is one of the closest persons to the Altar and to the Priest during the celebration of the Holy Eucharist and the administration of the Sacraments.

All servers undertake a period of training before they are able to take part in a service. At present we have a team of seven servers between the ages of 10 and 16 years of age. This does not mean that the position is only for the youngster in church – older members would be very welcome to train as an altar server.
