Acolytes

Coordinator: Fr. Neal Longe

Acolytes assist the clergy in the conduct of public worship.  An acolyte can assist in worship by carrying a processional cross, lighting candles, holding the Gospel book, holding candles or "torches", assisting a deacon or priest set up and clean up at the altar, swing incense or carry the incense boat, hand the offering plates to ushers, and many other tasks as seen fit by the priest.

Adults, teens, and all young people entering 2nd grade or beyond are invited to serve.  Training and orientation are provided; parental support is vital to the success of this ministry.
