To be an altar server is a special honor and a great privilege in the . Altar servers today can trace their roots or genealogy to the order of Acolyte, a ministry that once was reserved only for those who were going to be ordained priests. One can look upon being an altar server as a special and unique ministry by which you, a young person, can help to spread the Word and the Love of Christ through your actions and words.
The primary role of the altar server is to assist the priest in the celebration of the liturgy during Mass. This is done through specific actions and by setting an example to the congregation by active participation in the liturgy by their actions, singing of hymns, responses of the people, looking alert and sitting or standing at the appropriate times.
We welcome boys and girls in 5th grade through high school to be altar servers.

Please be aware that Monsignor Klinger has been the victim of a continuing email scam. Fake emails that appear to be from Msgr. Klinger have been sent to several parishioners asking for help. Please note that Msgr. Klinger would never ask a parishoner to help by asking for gift cards and does not have a g-mail account. Thank you.
