The place of the altar server in liturgical celebrations is one of distinction requiring evidence of reverence, faithfulness, attentiveness and maturity.  Young persons, boys or girls, who exercise the ministry of server should be mature enough to understand their responsibilities, to carry them out well, and to adhere to a spirit of reverence. They should already have received First Holy Communion.  The training sessions are scheduled as needed and for special observances throughout the year. Typically they are held on Saturday mornings or Sunday afternoons depending on the availability of the church. Notifications are sent out via email for current Altar Servers and posted in the weekly bulletin for candidates.
