Altar Servers assist the presider during the celebration of Mass. This is accomplished through paying close attention to the Liturgy thereby being able to anticipate what they can do to assist the presider as Mass progresses.
Altar serving is open to all boys and girls interested in taking an active role during the celebration of Mass. There is formal training and refresher training courses offered on an as needed basis.
There are Three Categories of Altar Servers
Weekend Masses - This category of server is open to all boys and girls whose family is registered at St Gabriel’s and who is at least 9 years old and is in at least the 4th grade.
Daily Masses - This category is identical to the weekend alter servers but also include adults who are available for daily mass Monday - Thursday 8:30 am
Friday Annunciation School Students’ Mass – This category of altar server is open to any boy or girl attending Annunciation Catholic School and who is at least 9 years old, and is in at least the 4th grade.
Altar servers are also scheduled monthly together with the EM’s and lectors. Please call parish office at 480-595-0883 or email email@example.com for more information
