Altar Servers assist the priest at each Mass and serve as an example for parishioners in expressing the dignity and solemnity of each Mass. They serve on a rotation basis at all Masses, including Weekend Masses, Holy Days of Obligation, Saint Charles School Masses, weddings and funerals.

The Ministry of Altar Servers is open to any boy or girl who meets the following requirements:

  1. Has received the Sacraments of Baptism and First Holy Communion in the Roman Catholic Church.
  2. Is in fourth grade or above and has the maturity to be a server.
  3. Fully understand the importance of the ministry and is committed to it.
  4. Has attended a training session to learn the duties and responsibilities of serving at Mass.
  5. Agrees to attend all mandatory meetings held throughout the years.

Training: Training is provided by the Parish through mentoring with existing Altar Servers and training by the Altar Server Coordinator.

Time Commitment: Altar Servers serve approximately two or three Masses per month. Parents are asked to ensure servers fulfill their commitments and are prepared to participate fully in each celebration.
