Altar Care Ministry serves the entire parish by preparing the Table for the celebration of the Eucharist and by caring for the altar linens. We also work with the Liturgy Committee to prepare for the liturgical seasons. Those who are experienced preparing the Table find it gratifying. Although the work of this ministry is not readily visible it is a very spiritual task that enhances the worship of the entire parish family.
Altar Servers assist the Presider at weekend Masses, funerals and special celebrations. Boys and girls over the age of 9 who have received First Communion are eligible to volunteer to do this very important job. We need all eligible youth who feel a calling to serve. It takes very little training and the spiritual rewards are great!
