“As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace. Whoever preaches, let it be with the words of God. Whoever serves, let it be with the strength that God supplies so that in all things, God may be glorified through Jesus Christ.”
— 1 Peter 4:10-11
Our Lord Christ the King Parish recognizes servers as a very important part of its liturgical ministry program. The place of the server in the liturgical celebrations remains one of prominence and distinction here at Our Lord Christ the King. The ministry of server retains a genuine vital role in the liturgical assembly. The role of servers, through their actions, is to bring the assembly to a fuller understanding of the liturgy and so to a greater love of God. Servers have a place of honor at Mass and liturgical celebrations because they assist the priest in many ways. Servers’ behavior and performance can be a sign of their faith and their love of God and for God’s people.
Emily Daley, the Coordinator of Religious Education, manages the Altar Server program.
