Altar Servers are children who have the privilege of serving Jesus at the celebration of the Holy Eucharist. One can join the altar servers group after their 1st Holy Communion and may serve till their Confirmation.
Today St. Anne’s Parish has a lively group of 20 Altar Servers who are both boys and girls. These are ably organized by three ex-altar servers namely – Lynston, Felicita and Oliver. The priest- in charge is Fr. Richard Saldhana.
The altar servers meet every Sundays at 10:30 am which is mostly after the Sunday School. The meetings are conducted by the three animators and appointments, training and fine-tuning of discipline are taken up during these meetings.
Part of being an altar server is also fun with outings, picnics and games after every meeting. Ex-altar servers cherish their memories of serving at the altar (besides of course the fun they had). They say “It is a small part of life which every child my experience.”
