An Altar Server assists the priest and deacons during the Mass. Servers are expected to be committed to giving their time and talent to their parish community, and willing to serve God’s people. They should be able to understand the Eucharistic celebration and the other sacred rites.
Altar Servers are part of a very ancient tradition in the liturgical life of the church. The Altar Server has a very important role in the liturgical assembly. Your role through your actions and conduct, is to bring the assembly to a fuller understanding of the liturgy, (The Mass).
You have a place of honor at mass, because you assist the priest in many ways. It is a very important responsibility and requires sincere commitment.
