Alter Servers

Altar servers of the parish assist the priests of St. Joseph’s and the whole worship community in the prayerful celebration of the Eucharist. Altar servers function as Cross Bearers and Acolytes, assisting the presider and other liturgical ministers with the sacred vessels, the presentation of the gifts, and the use of the Sacramentary Book. Open to boys and girls from the 5th grade up, altar service provides an opportunity for young people to be more active in their participation in Mass.
