The Ministry of the Altar Server is to provide girls and boys of St. Patrick’s Church the opportunity to serve our parish community at Mass and in that way, develop a deeper appreciation of the Eucharist and service to our Christian community.
We are currently recruiting for new altar servers. Many of our veteran servers are moving on to high school and college. We, therefore, invite families to encourage their children to participate in this very important ministry. Children who express an interest in becoming an altar server will participate in a series of training sessions with Fr. Bissex.
