Altar Servers / Monaguillos
Pope Francis says, "being an altar server is a privileged way to draw closer to Jesus. The closer you are to the altar the more you will remember to speak with Jesus in daily prayer. The more you will be nourished by the word of the Lord, the better you can give the gifts you have received with joy."
Why become an Altar Server?
- You learn why we do everything in the Mass and why is it that we do it?
- You get fully involved in the Mass and get more out of it.
- You pay more attention to the whole Mass.
- You meet new people.
- You learn communications, teamwork, punctuality, self-confidence
- You start to recognize more and more people in the church.
- Most importantly it helps you discern your vocation. (marriage, consecrated singlehood, religious life or even priesthood) which leads to deeper understanding and relationship with God.
