Altar Servers have a rich heritage, going back to Jesus himself. In fact, Jesus sent two of his disciples to prepare the Passover (Last Supper) for Himself and the Twelve. Over the centuries, ceremonies evolved and specially trained assistants called Acolytes became common. Today we have our altar servers, who love Jesus, love the Mass and want to give their time and talents in the service of God and his Church.

Altar Server Schedule & Sign-Ups
In order to maintain the integrity of the celebration of the Eucharist, Altar Servers, once scheduled, are required to secure their own replacement in the event they cannot fulfill their commitment.
Enter your log-in information, then click on “Groups.” The group(s) you belong to will be displayed, including the Reader roster for the Mass you minister. Simply click on the group name, and the contact list will be displayed.
An altar server can be any person who regularly attends St. Andrew the Apostle Church, knows the principal prayers of the Mass, has received First Communion, is tall enough to safely manage lighted candles, and has completed the training.
