Altar Servers
PURPOSE:  The Altar Servers assist in the celebration of the masses by providing a special ministry to the pastor and pastoral staff.  They are trained and expected to assist on the altar by serving for masses on weekends, holidays and special ceremonies.

OBJECTIVE:  The Altar Server Ministry is open to all youth, male and female.  Members must have made their First Communion to be serving on the altar.  They are encouraged to:  develop a better understanding of  "commitment and dedication of service"; to continue their involvement and give support to the parish and community by serving in other capacities as they grow, discover, and learn to share their special gifts and talents.

ACTIVITIES:
1.  Serve for weekend masses 4:00 pm, 7:30 am, 9:00 am and 11:00 am.
2.  Attend monthly meetings held on the 3rd Sunday of each month at 2:00 pm.
3.  Participation in annual ceremony for Outstanding Altar Server (Dioceses)
4.  Participate and support the IHM Family Day/Fall Festival.
5.  Annual Altar Server Outing (Christmas/Summer)
6.  Participation of specific age groups in: Lyke Conference, African American Catholic Youth Congress and various other parish/community activities held.
