We are bringing back the Altar server ministry. If you served before or would like to join this ministry, please contact the Ministry Center or Religious Education Office for more information.

Altar servers provide a vital ministry during parish liturgies. They lead processions, assist the priests, and add dignity and reverence to the liturgy by carrying out their roles. By becoming an altar server, boys and girls learn about the Mass, and they learn about responsibility and commitment by serving when they are assigned and finding replacements when they are unable to serve.

Who Can Serve: Anyone who has completed the 4th grade and has received the sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation, and Eucharist.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, the participation of the altar servers is limited to: carrying the Cross, candles and assisting the Priest during the washing of the hands.

Training is provided for all interested in becoming altar servers. Contact the Religious Education Office for more information at mrobak@saintzachary.org or 847-956-1175.
