Altar Serving at St. Martin of Tours is a privilege and carries a great responsibility. In addition to assisting the priest during weekend Masses, Holy Days of Obligation and other liturgical celebrations, the role of an altar server is to help the priest lead the congregation in worship. This is done by showing reverence in performing duties on the altar and participating in Mass by saying the prayers and singing.
Boys and Girls in the 4th grade through High School are invited to serve in this important ministry. The ideal server is someone who desires to serve God and who can maturely and reverently carry out the duties of an Altar Server.
