  Altar Boys

Through active participation in the Divine Liturgy on Sundays and holidays, the Altar Boy program instructs boys on the meaning of the Divine Liturgy, other services, and the fundamental sacraments of the church.

The role of the Altar Boy remains a genuine and vital one in the Eucharistic Assembly of the Faithful, as well as in the other services. He stands ready to serve God in this capacity. It is a stewardship of young men; a service that they offer to God as their regular Sunday offering of talent and ability.

All the actions, all of the movements of the Altar Boy serve to uplift the congregation in their time of worship. The way he performs these actions, and the actions themselves, brings the people in the congregation to a greater understanding of the Divine Liturgy. This is true of the other divine services as well; to bring the people to a greater love for God, a closeness to God, and serenity of the soul. The Altar Boy has a place of honor in the Divine Liturgy because it is he who assists the Priest in so many ways. His behavior and performance can be a sign of his faith, his love, and his prayer life for God and for God’s people.

The Altar Boy is in a holy place, the Altar, where all the Divine Services are celebrated. It is the place where we are near God at all times. It is equivalent to the place that Moses went to; on the mountain facing the burning bush. God spoke to him there and said: “The place where you are standing is a holy place. Remove your shoes and be attentive.” The same may be said about the Altar. It is a holy place, and dignity and respect must be ever present in all we say and all we do as Servers of the Lord.

To inquire about the Altar Boy program or to register a child for the Altar Boy program, please contact Father George via the Church office at (781) 593-6162.
