This ministry began using adults for liturgical ministry in June, 1983. Many parishes throughout the country have returned to this custom of the early church. The servers’ role is simply to assist the Presider; to do whatever is needed so the Presider is freed to do the job of leading the gathered community. They serve the community and the community’s leader at worship. Their ministry centers on the Sacramentary and the Table.
so that my very attitude and behavior
may be filled with diligence and dignity.
May nothing I do, by action or attitude
take away from the beauty and blessedness
of this Sacred Action.
