Altar Server

keep-calm-and-become-a-altar-server-257x300Here at Sacred Heart, we welcome our youth to become altar servers.

It is a great way for you to get more involved in your faith, get more involved with the Mass, learn more about the Eucharist and Mass, make great friends and memories, and listen to what God is trying to tell you.

Altar server training is generally held once a year in the Fall for new servers entering 4th through 12th grade. Servers are then scheduled on the typical liturgical schedule.
