Ministry of Acolyte
Men and women of the parish are urged to serve, that is to assist at the celebration of Mass on weekdays, Saturdays and Sundays.
From the earliest days of the church there were those from the congregation who would assist at mass, that is deacons, lectors and acolytes. Acolytes serve at the altar; they prepare the altar and sacred vessels. An acolyte may also be cross bearer or incense at Sunday Mass.
Serving at the Eucharistic table and at various liturgical celebrations you draw directly from the wells of salvation, the strength that is necessary to live well.
