Acolytes

IMG_3522Children and adults are invited to help lead worship by becoming an acolyte.

This involves carrying a cross or torches in procession, helping with the offering, and assisting the priest at the altar. A child’s ability to focus on carrying out these tasks is the requirement, rather than a specific age. We also welcome families to serve together, and have had siblings serve as acolytes together, as well as parents who serve with their children.

To become an acolyte please contact the church office with your preference to serve at either the 8:30 am or 10:30 am service.

We provide acolyte training and on-going refresher training. We will help you with the fitting of your acolyte robe. The acolyte schedule is set at least two to three months in advance, to assist your family in planning.
