These students (boys and girls) are volunteers who are trained to assist the priest during the celebration of Sunday Masses in our parish. They are upper grade school students of both Saint Celestine School and the Religious Education program. As a part of this ministry they carry the processional cross, candles, hold the sacred books for the Presider, and assist with the gifts at the offertory during the Mass.
Altar Servers are placed on a rotating schedule for the masses, and are responsible to find a replacement if they cannot serve at their assigned time. It is an honor and a privilege to serve in this capacity, and we need responsible people to help us out.
If you are interested in joining this ministry, please call Fr. Andre Beltran at the Pastoral Center at 708-453-2555.
