Servers Guild

ServersGuild What a honor it is to be able to serve in the sanctuary of the church! We welcome any young people that would like to be an altar server at Holy Trinity. We do all the necessary instruction and practices and provide the albs. The basic tasks a Server does is

1. Carry the cross during processions and recesssions, which is as we go into worship and as we leave worship.

2. Receive the offerings of the congregation and place them on the altar for the blessing.

3. Light the altar and sanctuary candles before worship and extinguish them at the end of worship.

4. Take the bread, wine and water from the credence table and pass them to the priest in preparation for the celebration of the Eucharist.

Other duties may be assigned as well by the officiant or celebrant of the worship service. It is not necessary to be already confirmed in order to serve. During training sessions there is always food provided for supper, or a visit is made to a local restaurant with the servers. If you would like to be a Server please speak to the rector.
