ALTAR SERVER GUIDELINES
 
Posted by. Deacon Terrel Broussard on Thursday, July 4, 2013
 
Pope John Paul II said to Altar Servers (August 1, 2001):

“The altar server has a privileged place in liturgical celebrations. Those who serve at Mass present themselves to a community. They experience from close at hand that Jesus Christ is present and active in every liturgy.... Jesus is present above all in the Eucharist, under the appearances of bread and wine. He acts through the priest who celebrates Holy Mass and administers the sacraments in persona Christi [in the person of Christ]. Therefore in the liturgy you are far more than mere "helpers of the parish priest". Above all, you are servants of Jesus Christ, the eternal High Priest. Thus you altar servers especially are called to be young friends of Jesus. Strive to deepen and foster this friendship with him. You will discover that in Jesus you have found a true friend for life. .... Your service cannot be restricted to the inside of a church. It must shine out in your everyday life: at school, in the family and in the different social contexts, for those who want to serve Jesus Christ in a church must be his witnesses everywhere.”

THANK YOU FOR YOUR MINISTRY

• THIS IS YOUR MINISTRY
•THIS IS HOW YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE
• THIS IS HOW YOU SERVE OTHERS.
