Altar Servers

Altar servers assist the priest and the deacon at Mass. Servers carry the cross and candles during the procession, hold the Sacramentary for the prayers, assist with setting and removing sacred vessels on and from the altar, and serve as role models for the congregation to follow during mass.

At St. Pius X, boys and girls from our parish (both from Jordan Catholic School and from CCD) are trained to serve after completion of 4th grade. We encourage high school students to continue to serve until high school graduation.

Contact Fr. Scott Potthoff, (309) 793-7373, ext. 220.

Altar Servers for Funeral Masses: Adult altar servers are needed for funeral masses. If anyone is interested in this ministry, please contact Bob Carton, (309) 786-7183.

 

ALTAR SERVERS SCHEDULE

June Altar Servers Schedule

 

 

"The altar server occupies a privileged place in the liturgical celebration. He who serves at Mass, presents himself to a community. He experiences firsthand that Jesus Christ is present and active in every liturgical act. Jesus is present when the community comes together to pray and render praise to God. Jesus is present in the Word of sacred Scripture. Jesus is present above all in the Eucharist under the signs of bread and wine. He acts through the priest who, in the person of Christ, celebrates the holy Mass and administers the sacraments."  St. Pope John Paul II
