ALTAR SERVER PERMISSION SLIP
Starting in the third grade, children from Saint Patrick Parish are welcomed and encouraged to participate in the Altar Server Ministry. Saint Patrick’s is in need of altar servers. They are a very important part of our parish liturgy celebrations. Altar servers participate at weekend liturgies, but they may also participate at daily Mass, funerals, and weddings if needed.
Becoming an altar server is a great way for your child to learn, at an early age, to serve God and their parish. What an example they would be to their peers as well as other members of the Church. God created us to serve Him and that is exactly what your child would be doing.
If your child is interested in becoming an altar server for Saint Patrick Parish, or if you have any questions, please call me at 781-272-5696. Also please fill out the permission form available here and return it to the Parish Office.
I would also like to extend this invitation to any adult who may want to serve. What an expression of faith if an entire family served Mass together.
Please give prayerful thought in allowing your child to become an altar server. Please consider becoming an altar server yourself.
