Altar serving is a ministry of the Church. Altar servers, as ministers, are important participants in the liturgy. Becoming an altar server requires a commitment from both the student and the parents. Altar servers must be able to attend Masses if they are assigned, whether or not it is convenient. These include Sunday Masses, holy day Masses, weddings and funerals on weekends. Altar servers and parents must realize this ministry is a twelve month commitment, including holidays, summer and school vacations.
