Acolytes

The ministry of acolyte has a rich history, which stems from Old Testament times. The acolyte assists the priest in order that Holy Communion and other rites of the Church may be celebrated with simple dignity and permit full participation. Adults and the youth of the church, ages eight and up, are given the opportunity to learn more about the Episcopal Church and to actively participate in services.

Acolytes perform several functions, such as torch bearer or crucifer, or carrying the Gospel Book, or banners and flags. New acolytes are given a chance to shadow more experienced acolytes as they observe and learn their new duties, moving from one position to another as they grow and mature in service over time. In addition, older acolytes mentor younger servers as they go about their assigned duties each Sunday.

All children and Youth are invited and encouraged to take part in this active ministry. If you would like more information, please contact the church office.
