Acolytes and Altar Servers

The ministry of the acolyte is to serve at the altar, assisting the priest. The particular duties of the acolyte include the preparation of the altar and  the vessels for Mass and, as a special minister of the Eucharist, the giving of Communion to the faithful.
The acolyte coordinates the other ministries at Mass, ensuring that all preparations are made and all ministries are filled in good time before the commencement of Mass.
