At St. Dominic Catholic Church, we invite all men and young men of the parish, 1st communion age and older, to prayerfully consider the ministry of altar serving. Parents, please encourage your sons to serve at the altar!
As an altar server, you are involved in the holiest and most sacred events of Catholic worship. As you assist the priest in celebrating the Holy Mass you are facilitating the encounter between God and his people.
"Therefore in the liturgy you are far more than mere "helpers of the parish priest". Above all, you are servants of Jesus Christ, the eternal High Priest. Thus you altar servers especially are called to be young friends of Jesus. Strive to deepen and foster this friendship with him. You will discover that in Jesus you have found a true friend for life...I have spoken of friendship with Jesus. How happy I would be if something more sprang from this friendship! How beautiful it would be if some of you could discover a vocation to the priesthood! Jesus Christ urgently needs young people who generously make themselves available to him without reserve." St. John Paul II
