Picture1 The St. Patrick altar servers are young people who assist the priests and deacons at the Mass. It is open to girls and boys who are in the 5th grade and up, and who have received Eucharist. This ministry involves a regular commitment to a scheduled Mass. It is one of the most helpful services that young people can perform in the parish and is an opportunity to learn more about the church and our worship of God.
 
There will be training for new servers & a refresher for 5th graders
on Tuesday, Feb. 21 at 2:45 in the church
 
Training will last about an hour.
