Acolytes are those Liturgical Officers who assist during the Mass by carrying the cross or torch candles, leading the procession at the beginning of Mass and at the reading of the Gospel. Acolytes stand near the altar to assist the priest. This is a favorite role for youngsters but is fulfilled by parishioners of all ages. Monthly training sessions are held on the first Saturday of the month at 11:00 am. Inquire from Marcel Tabor, Liturgy Chair 716-2388.
