About the Program
Our youngest acolytes usually join around age 8 or 9, but we’re happy to consider younger candidates for the role. Junior acolytes start with simple tasks, which can become more complex as they gain experience and confidence.
There’s a lot of variety in the type of things that acolytes do. For example, during processions, they serve as crucifer (carrying the cross) and torchbearer. During services, they sit in the chancel area, right up where the action is.
How to Join
If your child would like to join, contact our Acolyte Master, Cynthia Rodriguez. She’ll meet with you after church for an personalized orientation, arrange for your child to shadow someone experienced, and provide ongoing support for their individual learning.
