About Altar


The Altar Servers play an important role in assisting Priests at all Masses so that the congregation can be more attentive to the Word of God and make their time of worship more meaningful and deeply felt.

Other than serving at Masses, the Altar Servers have monthly meetings, organize trainings and involve in all church activities to enrich the liturgical knowledge of its members and to build bonding and unity among fellow Servers.

The Benefits Of Becoming An Altar Server :

Becoming an Altar Server is an important way to participate in parish liturgies, and to find out more about our faith.
