Consider Joining our Altar Server Ministry
St. Veronica Altar Server Ministry provides an opportunity for the young people of our parish to become more involved in the parish in a constructive, helpful and educational way. The altar server ministry is very important and beautiful commitment to our parish community and is an invitation by God. The altar server ministry provides boys and girls with the opportunity to learn more about their faith and to begin to build a foundation of evangelization and stewardship by serving at Mass and other liturgical functions. An altar server is the right hand helper of the Priest and Deacon at the Mass.
This ministry allows young parishioners to grow in the following ways:
•Serve Christ and the Church
•Participate in the Liturgy
•Learn more about the Mass and the Church
•Be more involved in the parish
The Ministry is open to those in Fifth Grade and beyond, who have celebrated their First Communion.
Altar Server training will begin in September, with sessions on Saturdays. We will let you know when the training session times are scheduled.
