Altar Servers
Contact:  Brian Wallisch (970) 635-5810
It is a great privilege to serve at the Altar of our God and therefore Servers are chosen from those boys and girls who display a desire for a more intimate union with our Lord and God, Jesus Christ.The primary role of the altar server is to assist the priest in the celebration of the liturgy during Mass. This is done by setting an example to the congregation by active participation in the liturgy, by looking alert, and sitting or standing at the appropriate times.  Servers carry the cross, the processional candle(s), hold the book for the priest celebrant when he is not at the altar, carry the incense and censer, present the bread, wine, and water to the priest during the preparation of the gifts or assist him when he receives the gifts from the people, wash the hands of the priest, and assist the priest celebrant and deacon as necessary.
