Becoming an Altar Server
Q: Who can become an Altar Server?
A:  A practicing member of our parish who has received 1st Communion and is in 4th Grade or higher.
Q: When do new servers get started?
A:  We recruit and train at the beginning of the school year.  New recruits in our parish school will have training during school.  New recruits in our PREP program have training sessions outside school hours.

Becoming an EXPERT Altar Server
Q:  How do new servers become expert and comfortable?
A:  Practice!  Ask Kathie Scott to schedule you MORE.  Serve Weekday Masses (and remember there’s Saturday too).  Volunteer for special ceremonies.  Review!  You are always welcome to ask Fr. McCabe to meet you after a particular Mass to go over things you know and learn new things too.
