Helpful Guidelines for Servers

To serve at God's altar at Mass is a very special privilege.  As an altar server you not only assist the priest, you also lead the congregation in the responses and actions of the Mass.  Such an important ministry requires each server to be at his or her very best.  A few things to keep in mind:


  1. Offer a Hail Mary before serving to pray for the graces to serve worthily.
  2. Please arrive for your assigned Mass at least fifteen minutes before it starts.
  3. Please dress your Sunday best.  Please avoid wearing sneakers.
  4. If you are unable to serve at the time you are scheduled, please find a server to cover for you.  Please send a notification of this change to: or by leaving a message at the Parish Office at (845) 782-8510. 

Thank you for your service!!!
