The altar servers at St. John Brebeuf Parish include students from grades 3 – 9. These students’ primary role is to assist Father Gordian in the celebration of the liturgy during Mass.
The responsibilities of the servers include carrying the cross, the processional candle(s), holding the book for the priest and presenting the bread, wine, and water during the preparation of the gifts.
Altar servers also assist Father during special occasions (weddings, funerals, baptisms), as well as during liturgical celebrations throughout the year (Easter, Christmas).
Attention all St. John Brebeuf Students, St. John Brebeuf Parish is looking for some dedicated young people to train as altar servers. Attending St. John Brebeuf School has started the process of preparing you for this experience that will strengthen your faith, but in addition, there will be scheduled training sessions to help you learn what is expected from you. Being an altar server will help you to meet your Ontario Catholic School graduate expectations. Think about helping your parish in this worthwhile ministry!
