Altar Server training and assignments are open to all St. Mark’s young people who have received their First Communion and who are in the fifth grade or above. This is an excellent opportunity to assist the celebrant at Mass, as well as to better understand the liturgy, thus affording young parishioners the privilege and honor of serving God in a very special way. Altar servers also work with the liturgy coordinator for each Mass to help set up for Mass and assist after Mass with the clearing of the items used during the liturgy.
To be part of this ministry you must be willing to dress and participate in a reverent fashion. Some knowledge of the order of the Mass is very helpful and the ability to assist every four weeks on a rotation basis.
