Serving at the altar is what you might see us do most of the time or perhaps all the time; however, besides serving at the altar in our albs, we do have other activities and events planned for the year as well.
We, the Ministry of Altar Servers or more commonly known as the “Altar Boys” are a Small Christian Community of young boys who dedicate our time on Saturdays and Sundays to serve the masses scheduled by the church.
We are also required to serve the weekday masses as well. All members of the ministry are trained to serve in various types of masses and services. Be it an infant baptism service, a wedding service, a funeral mass or a Sunday mass, we would do our best to assist the celebrant and ensure that the mass goes smoothly.
Besides serving masses, we also hold annual servers’ camps where we get to know one another better through group dynamic games and sessions. We also strengthen our faith through spiritual sessions. Not long ago, we just had our first leadership retreat for the future youth leaders of the ministry and the church.
Soccer is one activity that servers are very much involved in. we have been taking part in the Archbishop Cup for many years now. We also hold other small events like Christmas parties, inter-group outings etc.
The Ministry of Altar Servers is not just about what you see at every mass; so if you are interested to join us in the sanctuary, do refer to the following requirements and contact the following people below.
