Appropriate Age Level: Fourth grade and up.

Being a server requires reverence, knowledge, dedication, and a love of God and the Church. A server carries out the important role of assisting the priest(s) at mass. The ministry of serving at Saturday, Sunday or special liturgies requires assigning a specified number of servers. A server will be asked to serve approximately once a month. An effort will be made to schedule the servers at a time that is preferable to the server and his or her family. However, some flexibility is necessary in the event of an illness or as other special needs occur. Often more people sign up for a particular mass than the number needed, leaving another mass short of servers. In this case, the server may be asked to serve at a time other than their first choice.

This service to the Church helps you grow spiritually. Servers in the past have often enjoyed other special rewards as our appreciation for a job well done. Come and be surprised!

Training, which is usually held in September, is available for those who have never served before.
