At each celebration of the Eucharist, children or adults assist the priest with the Liturgy. Children, third grade and up, and adults are eligible to serve provided they have been Baptized, have received First Eucharist, and are in good standing with the Church. All training is provided.
It is a great privilege to serve at the Altar of our God and therefore Servers are only chosen from among those who display a desire for a more intimate union with our Lord and God, Jesus Christ. Our loving Savior becomes present on the Altar, just as He was at the Last Supper and at Calvary. Accordingly, Servers have a solemn responsibility to carry out their assigned duties with dignity and reverence. St. Andrew Catholic Church has Altar Servers, both boys and girls, who may start serving after their First Communion.
