Service - Formation - Unity

We are bringing back the Altar server ministry.

If you served before or would like to join this ministry, please contact our Parish Office (954) 4581590 or Eva Hart at (954) 483-1231.

This is a unique and special Ministry. Altar servers are part of the Eucharistic celebration each Sunday and on special occasions. They lead processions & assist the priests. By becoming an altar server, boys and girls learn about the Mass, and they learn about responsibility and commitment by serving when they are assigned and finding replacements when they are unable to serve.

Who Can Serve: Anyone who has received the sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation, and Eucharist.

The training will be every Friday from 6.00pm to 7.30pm in church.
