Altar Servers

Altar server positions are open to all parishioners beginning in 6th grade. Servers assist the priest during Mass by holding the Sacramentary, carrying the cross and candles when needed, and helping at the preparation of the Gifts and Consecration.  Training for altar serving takes place once a year, typically in March.  Children with special needs are welcome to participate in this ministry.  For more information please contact Mrs. Deirdre Whitty at or 301-946-1243.
