Serve at the altar
Acolytes assist the priest and augment the ritual during the celebration of the liturgy.
If you are a registered parishioner — adult or youth in 3rd grade or above— you’re invited to join this team-based and inter-generational ministry.
- Serve with a team once a month during the celebration of the Eucharist.
- Receive one-on-one training with a mentor.
- Current acolytes can access the secure user group page by logging into the Acolyte user group page on MyBasilica.
- After training, you’ll serve once per month.
- You may volunteer to serve on holy days of obligation; for the liturgy of the hours, baptisms, weddings, and funerals; and for Christmas and Easter liturgies. There are special rehearsals for Advent/Christmas and Lent/Easter.
- Once a year, all ministries gather together for reflection and celebration.
