Altar Server Guidelines
We provide a Catholic Christian environment composed of a caring, close-knit community of students, staff and parents. Our common goals of academic and spiritual growth are accomplished by learning together, worshipping together and serving together. Students of all faiths are welcome at St. John the Evangelist Catholic School. All students are expected to participate in all faith activities and assignments.
We provide education and practice of the Catholic faith daily along with multiple Christian service opportunities. We are committed to nurturing the values of the Gospel message in our daily contact with one another, our families and the community at large. Religious development is approached simply and through the total context of the student’s life. Teachers and staff share their faith through their teaching and by example.
Our student body is very active in their own faith formation. Each day we begin and end our day with a prayer written and shared by one of our Grade 1 through Grade 8 students. Students deliver the intentions, and serve as lectors and altar servers at our weekly Mass.
Every month, our school as a whole focuses on a virtue such as Faith, Kindness, Honesty, and Self-Control. We begin the month with a prayer service that teaches the students about the virtue, as well as when and how to apply it in their life. Each grade is responsible for preparing a prayer service throughout the year. Classes often use skits, music, stories, and games to reinforce the virtue.
We encourage parents to join us for weekly Mass, liturgical celebrations, and prayer services.
Serving at Mass
Beginning in fourth grade students have the opportunity to become altar servers. Altar Serving is a great way to become involved in youth oriented ministry in the church. The presence of these young servers at liturgical functions emphasizes the conviction that persons of all ages are an integral part of our Christian Community.
