Preparation and Training
Preparation and Training is usually held between January and March each year. Preparation begins with a meeting with the parents to help them understand their role in the ministry of Altar Serving. The parent meeting is followed by four training sessions – one hour per session on a Wednesday from 3.45pm -4.45pm – under the supervision of the Altar Server Coordinator and team.
After the four sessions an Altar Server will then serve two Masses with a senior Altar Server., before being placed on the rota.
