Acolytes are a very important part of our worship here at Holy Cross Faith Memorial. Acolytes lead the procession; take part in the reading of the Gospel as well as many other aspects of worship and liturgy. Their presence at the Lord’s Table is especially important as they assist the clergy in preparing the table for Holy Eucharist. They play special roles in other celebrations such as Baptisms and Confirmations as well as special occasions such as the annual visit of the Bishops of the Diocese. The new Acolyte Guild will consist of an acolyte Mom or Dad to help the younger members get ready for the service, a person to do the scheduling and of course the acolytes. Adults and youth are welcome and encouraged to be an acolyte. No experience is necessary, as the clergy will provide any training needed. Please contact the church office if you are interested.
