Altar Serving

St. Francis de Sales
6610 Balmoral Street
Burnaby, BC V5E 1J1

Altar Servers enhance the quality of liturgical celebrations (Masses, funerals, baptisms, weddings, prayer services, etc.) by assisting the priest in various ways during the liturgy and by taking part in the processions.  Participating as an altar server is a wonderful way to be involved and to learn and understand the elements that compose these celebrations. 

This ministry is available to young boys and girls who are in third grade with First Holy Communion.  Ongoing training by a priest or coordinator is required.

If, after prayer and reflection, your child or teen feels called to train as a altar server, we invite you to apply - on their behalf - for this ministry.
