Altar Servers can be said to be very fortunate that they have been chosen by God to give their service during the celebration of the liturgy. The liturgy is a public act of worship that the Church gives to God, so the service of the Altar Server is extremely important. Altar servers are chosen from among the faithful who display a desire to participate in an intimate way during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Coordinator: Ken Mangano
