  IMPORTANCE TO OUR CHURCH:

+ The Liturgy is the work of all the people. Servers add a dimension to the liturgy that enhances it as they serve and assist the presider.

JOB DESCRIPTION:

+ Servers may be assigned to one Mass every week or, depending on the numbers, every other week. They are trained to serve at the altar, and will learn the flow of the liturgy and its various parts. They are expected to arrive 15 minutes early to assist in making sure all is ready for the celebration.

TIME FRAME:

+ One hour a week is the usual time frame, plus any meetings, usually two or three a year to gain new knowledge and to review skills already learned.

SKILLS TO BE USED/DEVELOPED:

+ You will learn how to serve without being a distraction to others. Poise, a certain amount of self control, and decorum are very helpful.

NUMBER OF STEWARDS:

+ If we had 10-20, one would be assigned to serve about two weekends per month.

TRAINING REQUIRED:

+ We would ask new members to have at least three training sessions. One of our Adult Servers does the training either in the summer or on Saturday. First serving assignments are also with experienced servers when possible.

AGES:

+ Boys and girls that have celebrated their First Communion.

BENEFIT FOR THE STEWARD:

+ Learn about the Mass and what goes on in a deeper way. Ability to become more actively involved in the church's prayer, and in the parish.
