Our acolytes are youth who serve at the altars at the 8:50 a.m. and 10:50 a.m. worship services and processions for other church festivities.
In addition to our education program, a very good way for parents to help their children know God is to involve them in worship. We have opportunities for our children and teens to be active as worship leaders through our music ministry and acolyte ministry. Beginning at age 10, youth can be trained as acolytes to learn to serve as light bearers, flag bearers, second crucifers, first crucifers, and aviators. We welcome and encourage our youth in leadership! Our next acolyte training announcement will be posted soon. If you would like to inquire about becoming an acolyte, please check with Patrick, Stacey, or Kathy (see right) for more information.
An honor acolytes is someone who is not only involved in our acolyte program but also the educational and fellowship activities of our programs over the course of the year. We honor those acolytes 2-3 times a year in our bulletin announcements and by awarding them with these crosses (pictured below). We love all of our acolytes but want to acknowledge those who go above and beyond with this special token of our appreciation.
