Altar Servers

“Know, O Christian, that the Mass is the holiest act of religion. You cannot do anything to glorify God more, nor profit your soul more, than by devoutly assisting at it, and assisting as often as possible.”
— St Peter Julian Eymard

Altar Servers

There is no greater honour than to serve at the altar during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. With this in mind, Holy Name has a group of devoted altar servers who assist at Mass on all Sundays, feast days and processions throughout the year. Ranging from age 8 to adulthood, the servers meet during school terms on Monday evenings to practice the roles and movements that form part of the sacred liturgy. There may be extra practices required before major feasts such as Easter, Christmas and Holy Week.

Please note that altar servers must be 8 years of age or older and must have made their first Holy Communion for at least one year before joining.


WHEN: Monday Evenings (in school term time).
TIME: 5:30pm-6:30pm.
WHERE: Catholic Church of the Holy Name.
Cost: No cost.
AGE: 8+. One needs to have made their first Holy Communion for 1 year before joining.

If you or a child of yours has not served before, and would like to, please contact Fr Sofatzis to request to join the altar servers.
