Adults who are formed in the Ministry of Altar Serving offer support not only with serving the Mass and the rituals of the funeral liturgy but also through their prayerful presence during the liturgical celebration.
Formation for Adult Servers is provided twice a year for new members so that they may have an understanding of their role within funeral liturgies. Experienced servers also attend these formation sessions. We also gather annually for a retreat experience.
Adult Servers need to have flexible schedules so that they can be available as needed. They rarely receive more than a 2-3 day request to serve at a funeral liturgy.
Adult Servers are extremely generous with their responses to our requests. They are a blessing to our priests, families and Funeral Liturgy Team.
