Altar Server Ministry

What a Great Honor to Serve the Lord at the Altar!


St. Anthony the Abbot Altar Server Ministry is made up of young people and adults who assist our priest and deacons during the celebrations of the Mass.


Becoming an Altar Server is often one of the first
for young people to become part of 
the parish community by
assisting at all liturgies.


Children in third grade and up that have received their
First Holy Communion are encouraged to become
part of this ministry.  Trainingis required.


Altar boys assist specifically at the Traditional Latin Mass.    They have the opportunity to learn Latin responses, used at the Mass.  Proficiency in language and action must be met to be inducted in the Confraternity of St. Stephen. 

To be an active participant in the Mass is very special.
