parishioners starting around age nine may begin
training to be an Acolyte.
Their training includes the lighting and
extinguishing of candles; postures when standing,
sitting, and kneeling; the handling of the
processional cross; and the procedure of serving the
celebrant or the deacon when he prepares the Table
for Holy Communion. A Head Acolyte mentors his
fellow acolytes and assists at their training
sessions. It is an honor and a privilege for a young
person, or any lay person, to participate in the
presentation of the weekly services and to serve in
this special ministry to our Parish. Acolytes
usually serve at either the 8:00 or 10:30 services
on a rotating basis.
If you are interested in becoming an acolyte,
contact the All Hallows Parish Office.
