Altar Servers

Altar Serving

Altar Server Ministry at Holy Spirit Parish aims to enrich our children with true knowledge, deep appreciation and active participation with our Catholic Faith, i.e. to start young in living a faithful life through serving at the Altar of God.

At Holy Spirit Parish, Altar Servers start as early as in 5th Grade. This honor and privilege is being offered to both boys and girls who have been baptized, received their First Holy Communion, and attend Mass regularly. We give them hands-on training and allow them to shadow for the first few times until they build confidence and want to begin serving.

There are four levels of servers: Beginner Altar Servers, Altar Servers, Senior Altar Servers, and Young Servant Leaders. Every Altar Server advances to the next level by demonstrating their Learning knowledge, Serving competency, and Leading skill. For a preview of the advancement program, you can view the Altar Server Booklet here.

We appreciate all the effort that our Altar Servers put into the ministry and hope that they continue their charitable service as they grow and mature in faith to other ministries.
