Boys from seven years and older are encouraged to participate as altar boys. Serving in the Holy Altar offers the opportunity to serve Christ in the context of liturgical services. There is no greater privilege bestowed upon a young man of the parish than being chosen to serve God, his church, the priest, and the congregation during divine services. It is a unique opportunity to learn from the priest, to learn from each other, and to grow in stature and grace within the Church, and to learn about the Divine Liturgy.
