Whether participating in the 10:30 a.m. Sunday worship service or special festival services, acolytes are always ready to serve with enthusiasm and dedication. They assist the clergy in a variety of ways: bearing torches, carrying a processional cross, carrying the Gospel Book, as well as receiving the offertory plates from the congregation. Serving as an acolyte is perhaps the earliest point in a person’s life to serve God in his church. Acolytes receive on-going training.

If you are interested in becoming an acolyte or learning more about the Saint Stephen’s Acolyte Guild, please call Father David at the parish office.
