Lead Altar Server- Lead Altar Servers have at least three full years of experience as an Altar Server. They have mastered service of the regular Mass and have participated in multiple special occasion Masses.  Lead Altar Servers are the Peer Leaders of the Ministry. They help train other servers, particularly Apprentices.  Those who aspire to this level of service should ask the Pastor to promote them to this level and a training class will be provided.   

Senior Servers Senior Altar Servers have served at special occasions and are capable of fulfilling almost all of the needs of the Parish for Altar Service.  Served in all positions (CROSS and CANDLES); served at least two special Masses or services (Easter Vigil, Christmas Midnight, Stations of the Cross) . Those seeking this level of service should ask the Pastor to promote them to this level.  A training class will be provided and Senior servers commit to serving while in High School.

Apprentice Servers   The Apprentice Program gives new Altar Servers the opportunity to learn by closely watching experienced Altar Servers. The Apprentice's job is to watch and learn.  Apprentices dress in albs and walk in procession with the regular Altar Servers. An apprentice will be assigned the position of book holder for a minimum of three  masses.   Persons meeting the requirements to become an Altar Server are admitted to the Apprentice level after attending a new Altar Server training.

ALTAR SERVER'S PRAYER:  Loving Father, Creator of the universe, you call your people to worship, to be with you and each other at Mass. Help me, for you have called me also. Keep me prayerful and alert. Help me to help others in prayer. Thank you for the trust you’ve placed in me. Keep me true to that trust. I make my prayer in Jesus' name, who is with us in the Holy Spirit. Amen.

DEFINITION OF ALTAR SERVER: It is a great privilege to serve at the Altar of our God and therefore Servers are chosen from 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 Calvary.  Accordingly, Servers have a responsibility to do their assigned duties with dignity and reverence.
