Acolytes
Acolyte Coordinator: Barbara Davis


The Acolytes or Altar Servers actively assist the Clergy, by serving in the sanctuary (at the altar), during worship services, particularly on Sundays. Thus the word, "acolyte" or "server" means “one who helps.” The Acolyte Guild at Holy Sacrament consists of young people of ages ranging from elementary school to college. Acolytes participate in the services as crucifer (carries the processional cross), torchbearers (carry the candles), servers (assists the clergy at the altar, thurifer (takes the thurible or censer), and boat bearer (carries the incense).
