New Altar Server Training

Holy Thursday 2019-3873_edit.jpg

Hello!

My name is Jack Sexton. Over the past year, with the help of Shelly Aebi and Fr. Kevin, we have redesigned the Altar Server program. Hopefully these changes will encourage our older Servers to continue to serve as they journey into High School and college, and will set new goals for our younger servers. If you are in 6th grade or older, we invite you to join the altar serving team! We will be hosting Altar Server Training for New Servers:

Monday, September 23, 3:30 – 5:00 PM

Please contact Shelly Aebi at shellyaebi@olgparish.org if you will be attending one of these trainings. We need you!

Thank you and God Bless,
Jack Sexton, Altar Server Assistant
Shelly Aebi, Director of Liturgy
