As the Altar Servers ministry, we assist the celebrant and the worshiping community in the celebration of the Liturgy of the Mass. The ministry of assisting the priest, deacon, and people of God at Mass is a great way to give glory to God by serving God and His people.
It is our mission to help our altar servers to grow in faith, love and unity with God, others and the faith community of St Andrew’s Parish.
As an altar server you will be involved in some of the most sacred celebrations of the Catholic tradition. The Eucharist is central to our living the sacramental life. Mostly, altar servers serve at Mass on Saturdays and Sundays. For those that attend St. Andrew's School or another Catholic school may have the opportunity to serve at school Masses. The servers keep things running smoothly and are attentive to what is happening in the liturgy. One thing is for sure, you often get to be up close to where all the action is happening.
Our Altar Server ministry consists of youth, between 7 years old and 18 years old who has received 1st Holy Communion or will receive 1st Holy Communion within 1 year. Boys and girls who are able to perform the duties of alter servers can serve. Training is scheduled several times during the year and the trainings are announced in the bulletin. Once trained, you will be scheduled for Mass.
Some of the things we do to accomplish our mission are:
- Training and learning about the liturgy
- Serving at the table of the Lord
- Field trips (Catholic Lagoon day, Museum of natural curiosity, Classic Fun Center, Bluffdale park
