Any Catholic could be a server at the altar, but this ministry is especially for the youth. The ministry of altar server at Our Lady and St. David’s Church is available to any Catholic from the time of their First Holy Communion and there is no mandated ‘quitting’ age. You are welcome to stay in the Lord’s service for as long as you wish to remain. Older servers are trusted with more responsibilities than the younger ones and are also expected to help in the training of new servers. This is an excellent way for you to begin your “stewardship,” as you give the gift of your time to serve at the Altar of God.
We also have an altar servers club who meet regularly for fun and games! We also spend some time in prayer and then on special occassions we might even have a bite to eat! For those who have moved on to seconday school yet wish to remain in active service, we have an altar ministers group who meet seperately and develop their friendship with one another through outings, films and pilgrimages.
If you wish to join our dedicated team of servers, please visit our website (click here), download the relevant forms, fill them in and drop them back to the parish office. Once we receive the forms we will be in touch with you about training and commencement of duties.
We welcome you to this very special ministry of serving God and His people in the Parish of Naas. We thank you for answering the prompting of the Holy Spirit by wanting to take part more fully in the worship of God.
