Altar Server Guidelines
Dear Altar Server,
You are an important member of the team of parishioners who serve Mass. Always remember that it is an honor and a privilege to serve at Mass. Thank you for deciding to be an Altar Server.
The primary role of an altar server is to assist the priest in the celebration of the liturgy. This is done by helping the priest and setting an example to the congregation by really participating in the Mass (singing, saying the responses, etc.).
The Altar Server Guidelines Booklet will guide you with the things you need to know to serve Mass at St. Peter the Apostle Parish. Please read this information carefully, study it, and keep it as a handy reference. To do a good job, you must know the steps to serve Mass. So please learn these steps well. Be prepared to serve as a Book, a Bell or a Crucifer.
The Altar Server Guidelines Booklet also includes some “vocabulary” words and some guidelines for how to serve Mass. Please learn the terms so that you know what the things are in the church. Read and familiarize yourself with the guidelines too.
Thanks again for making the commitment to St. Peter the Apostle Parish ! If you have any questions or concern, please contact the parish office at 897-5156
