Altar Service


To provide assistance to the priest at the celebration of Eucharist to ensure that the celebration flows smoothly

Jesus at the Last Supper showed in a dramatic way that he came not be served but to serve and so in their own way the younger members of our Parish family can follow the example that Jesus himself gave.

Altar servers assist the priest during liturgies in the Parish especially Sunday Eucharist. They help to bring Jesus closer to his people and make him more present in the world.

The ministry is open to those who are aged over 8 years old, have completed the Sacramental Preparation Programme and regularly attend Eucharist. This ensures that those who undertake this ministry are mature enough to understand what they are undertaking and have a sense of the various parts of the Eucharistic
celebration so they are able to provide assistance to the other ministers.
