Altar Serving at Saint Bridget

Posted on December 12, 2023 in: General News

Calling Future Altar Servers!

Our parish has a longstanding and well-regarded altar server ministry. Annual altar server training is approaching and applications are now open for young parishioners fifth grade and older. We are looking for reverent, responsible, and serious applicants. Altar servers complete a three-part training program learning the altar server role and important terminology. Once servers are trained and comfortable, they will be added to the Mass rotation. Altar servers are asked to serve about once a month for Sunday (or Saturday Vigil) Mass and about once a month for daily Mass (for SBS students). There are also special opportunities such as solemnities (Holy Days), funerals, weddings, and prayer services. There is flexibility to schedule during your family's preferred Mass times and to coordinate with other ministry obligations.

Parents are asked to talk with their children to consider this call to be a part of the altar server ministry. This ministry can be foundational to your children's faith formation and is a ministry that influences and can be shared with the entire family.
