Altar Server Families,

Thank you for your service to St. James Parish!!!  Please remember if you cannot make your scheduled Mass, send an email to all the servers to find a substitute.

To serve at the altar is helping a priest, our parish, and above all God. Serving allows the students to play an active part in parish life. It is a way of giving back to the parish community. Altar servers assist at every weekly Mass and weddings.

The main function of altar servers is to assist the priest (and God) at the altar. Altar servers do this in many different ways: holding the book, holding the acolyte candle, carrying the cross, as well as setting the altar before the blessing of the Eucharist.To serve at the altar is helping a priest, our parish, and above all God.
