An altar server is a lay assistant to a member of the clergy during a Christian religious service. An altar server attends to supporting tasks at the altar such as fetching and carrying, ringing the altar bell and so on.
There are two opportunities to become involved in this ministry at SS Peter and Paul. Children who have received their First Holy Communion are invited to become an altar server and serve at weekend Masses and weddings until High School graduation. Adult altar servers assist Father at funerals and weekday Masses. The Youth Altar Servers are led by Mrs. Gloria Flynn. Interested adults are encouraged to contact Father Boyle.
