Altar serving is an important ministry through which ministers take an active part in assisting at the Liturgy and helping everyone to pray better. It is a great privilege and responsibility.
Anyone who has been fully initiated through the reception of the sacraments of Baptism, Holy Eucharist and Confirmation and is at least in third grade is eligible to become an altar server within Our Lady, Queen of the Yough Catholic Community.
Those desiring to become an altar server should have the maturity necessary to be able to reverently assist the priest in the celebration of the Mass and to fulfill their commitment as a server. We will schedule classes to give all individuals the necessary training. The altar server guidelines can be found here.
Volunteers of all ages are welcome, and can assist at weekend liturgies as well as Daily Mass, weddings, funerals, and other special events. The schedule is mailed out and can also be found in the bulletin the week prior. Scheduled servers who can’t make the Mass time are asked to find a replacement.
