The Catholic Church says there is nothing more important than the Mass. The Mass is the reenactment of the Last Supper when Jesus said to His Apostles:
"Do this in memory of Me."
It is through our Baptism as Catholics that we are called to be disciples of Christ and to participate in Mass every Sunday and Holy Day. Being part of the Ministry of Altar Servers, you are called by the Lord in a very special way to participate in the Mass. You will help by preparing for Mass and assisting the Priest & Deacon at the altar during Mass. The Altar Server will also help in leading the people in prayer, song, responses, and when to sit/stand/kneel.
Altar Serving is a great ministry to begin volunteering in the church. St. Thomas Aquinas welcomes all children from grades 3 and up, who have received the Sacrament of First Holy Communion to consider joining this Ministry. If you feel that you are being called to this beautiful Ministry and would like more information, please contact the parish office or Deacon John.
