New Altar Server Training

Due to the COVID pandemic, we have not had as many altar servers as we would like. Usually, we do the training of new altar servers in the fall. However, we would like to train new servers now, so that they may serve at the altar during the summer. This is a wonderful way in which you can grow in faith and service.

Pre-registration is required for any training session. Please have your parent send an email to Mrs. Pechiney (lpechiney@allsaintsva.org) to pre-register.

New Altar Server Training
New servers must be rising 5th graders or above and at least 10 years old by September 30, 2022. Both boys and girls are
eligible. We welcome rising 5th through 12th graders. As in previous years, new servers will need to attend two (2) new
server sessions before being scheduled. These sessions are:

  • Session #1: Tuesday, May 17, 6:00–7:00 PM. This is a mandatory session in which you will learn liturgical vocabulary and terms necessary for the second session.
  • Session #2: You must attend one of these two dates: Monday, May 23, or Tuesday, May 24, 6:00–7:00 PM.
