We are the Knights of the Altar
Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ. - Colossians 3:23-24
The Altar Serving Ministry opens our heart to God. In this Ministry we get to meet new friends and serve God in a special way. The altar server’s responsibility is to assist the priest in the sacrifice of the mass. They are also there, so that when the faithful don’t know when to stand or know their posture, they can look at the altar servers. We keep our hands is prayerful posture at all times because our blessed mother is always pointing her hands to heaven.
In this Ministry there are about 25+ members that have been dedicated into serving God and his people. They have been committed at their scheduled masses and are always prepared to serve. The older altar servers teach the young ones how to do the task, when asked. We are actually knights of the altar because we serve in every way that we can. We respond quickly to when the priest is in need of assistance.
This ministry is to also build companionship and teamwork. We make sure the altar servers know one another, so that they can communicate effectively on the sanctuary. Communicating is very essential, because many of the tasks are difficult to remember.
