Altar Servers (Adult)

An Adult Altar Server is a lay assistant to the clergy during a religious service. Altar servers tend to tasks at the altar, such as: carrying the processional cross and candles; holding the missal and presenting the wine and water.

Currently, Adult Altar Servers assist the clergy at the 7:15 AM Sunday Mass. They also are requested to serve at funerals, normally during the morning hours. 

This ministry is open to both men and women. It is a wonderful experience, especially for a married couple who could serve together. Training will be provided here at St. Zachary Parish.
