Youth Altar Servers
Serving Mass as an Altar Server is an excellent opportunity for the youth of the parish to learn about “service” to the greater community.
It also assists the young person in taking personal responsibility and enables them to become more familiar with The Mass.
Training sessions will soon be scheduled. Once the training is completed a schedule will be emailed.
We do our best to accommodate your schedules.
Senior Altar Servers
Senior servers assist at Liturgies of Christian Burials. There are four Adult Servers at each Liturgy.
Training will be provided. All who come to Ste. Rose for a funeral are always impressed with the dignity and respect provided for every funeral; whether it is large or small. Servers are called by the Pastoral Center on an “as needed” basis.
To proclaim effectively “The Word” at Sunday Mass is a ministry unto itself. The effective proclamation of The Word enables the assembly to truly “hear” God’s Word. Again, training is available and your schedule will be accommodated. There is no age requirement.
The only requirement is to have the ability to read clearly and honorably.
Assisting the Priest at Sunday Mass with the distribution of the Eucharist enables the distribution not to be unduly long.
Assisting in this capacity is reminiscent of the Apostles distributing the loaves and fish. Training is also available.
Some may feel they are not worthy to participate in this ministry; but then again, who is?
The parish has begun to expand this crucial service as well. There are several sacristans and as they have become more familiar with their role they have begun to appreciate a greater sense of what it takes to properly prepare for a Mass. Training will be provided.
With several sacristans for each Mass there would be a schedule to accommodate each other’s schedules.
