The ministry of altar server in the Catholic Church is very unique, other than the priest and deacons; no one else has the opportunity to participate so closely in the preparation of the Eucharist. At St. John Vianney, altar servers are chosen from those young men and women who display a desire for an intimate union with our Lord. Everything they do is a witness to their love of Jesus in the celebration of the Mass. Great care is taken to instruct each server on how to perform all duties and responsibilities with dignity and reverence.
Requirements to serve as an altar server:
- Be a registered member of St. John Vianney or another Catholic Church
- Regularly receive the sacraments
- Must be in 5th grade or older
- Be enrolled in a Faith Formation program through school, church or home study
