Altar Server Training: Calling all 5th-8th Graders

Posted on September 26, 2023 by Published by

Calling all 5th through 8th graders!

Have you ever watched the servers at Mass and wondered what it’s like to be up on the altar during Mass? Have you ever wanted a closer look at what it’s all about?

Current altar servers would like to invite you to join their ministry!

We are seeking boys and girls from Our Lady of the Wayside Parish that would like to become more involved in their spiritual life and increase their service to our Parish by serving at Mass. We’ll provide the training. All you have to do is show up with enthusiasm and a heart that is ready to participate in Mass in a new way.

Altar Servers assist at Sunday Liturgies, School Liturgies, Holy Day Liturgies, and  some may receive additional voluntary training to assist at weddings and funerals. Soon, Altar Servers who are Wayside school students will also be scheduled to serve at the 8:30 am daily Mass once a month. Altar Serving is a ministry, and servers and their families must make a serious commitment to timely attendance and attention to the schedule.

If you are interested in learning more about this important and awesome ministry made up of kids like you, please join us.  Training occurs over 2 sessions, each 90 minutes long.  Training session 1 will be held on October 2, 3, 4 and training session 2 will be held on October 9, 10, 11.  You must attend one session from Part 1 and one session from Part 2.  All sessions will be 4:00 – 5:30pm in the Church.

Parents are asked to please attend the first session with you. Important information for parents will be covered at the Part 1 sessions.

If you have any questions, please contact Deacon Pete –
