For many years, one of the most visible ministries provided by the youth of St. Patrick Parish has been to assist with Sunday liturgies as Mass servers. Girls and boys complete training during which they learn the parts of the Mass, the purpose of the vessels and vestments, and prescribed rites during various seasons and celebrations.
Adults may also serve in this ministry, and one of the ways adult servers have been especially generous in this capacity is by serving for funeral liturgies.
During the pandemic, in an effort to maintain distance between ministers at the altar, Mass servers are not being scheduled. Please watch for a new recruitment and training message as the pandemic passes.
