About this ministry
Altar Boy Ministry

From the Altar boy handbook:

Altar Boys (Acolyte) are Apprentices, serving God and His Church by serving the priest.  An apprentice is a person who is learning a job by working alongside a master who has a lot of experience in that area.  Being an Altar Boy is NOT a ‘rite of passage’ or just something to do during the services of the Church.  Instead, it IS an opportunity to learn how to serve around the Altar of God under the guidance of the Priest(s), Deacon and Subdeacon(s) with an open heart and mind to the possibility of one day being tonsured/ ordained as a Reader, Subdeacon, Deacon or Priest.  Serving God as an Altar Boy is an important ministry that we take very seriously, and which brings us great joy! 

Age 5+ are welcome to serve!

If you are interested in this ministry talk to Rdr. John Jordan Gamble or Fr. Noah
