The Church makes available to all boys of the Parish (third grade and older) the opportunity to serve in the Holy Altar as Acolytes. The word “acolyte” comes from the Greek word “akoulotheo” meaning “to follow.” The service of our young men at the Lord’s Altar on Sundays and special holidays like Christmas, Holy Week and Pascha is a part of their calling to follow Christ Jesus and serve His Church. Altar boys assist the priest on Sunday mornings and during special services throughout the year on a rotating basis.
In addition to Sunday services, highlights of the program include being able to serve during Holy Week and other Feast Days.
