The Altar Boys have an important responsibility in the Holy Altar. They assist the priest with church services and serve under the supervision of the priest. Altar Boys assist and serve the Priest as the angels assist and serve God. They must be mature enough to carry out the duties without disrupting the sanctity of the Holy Altar. We encourage all young boys at St. Paul’s to become Altar Boys.
Altar Boys Duties:
- Prepare the charcoal and incense for the censer
- Maintain the censer and hand it to the priest or deacon when required
- Carry the cross, candles, and liturgical fans in entrances and processions
