Altar Servers serve a very important role in the Mass. His or her immediate and primary duty is to assist the presiding priest. By reverently serving the priest and deacon, he or she is assisting the entire congregation to prayerfully enter into praise and worship of Almighty God in the Sacred Liturgy. Due to their proximity to the altar, servers are in a unique position to model reverence, respect, and dignity for the entire parish community. Proper and attentive serving leads people into a more prayerful and worthy participation in the Holy Eucharist.
If you have a child who feels called to “Rise Up Now!” and serve the community by being an altar server, please contact Fr. Lynch or call him at the parish office at (614) 885-7814
