Altar Boys – Ages 8 and Up

A Tradition Where Young Men Become Part of the Process of the Divine Liturgy

Acolytes, or altar servers (often called “altar boys”), are a time-honored tradition in the Orthodox Church. In order to be involved in the Altar Ministry we have several guidelines:
  • Altar Servers (Acolytes) can be any boy from the age of 8 and above.
  • Baptized and/or Chrismated Orthodox Christian, in good standing with the Church.
  • Physically and mentally prepared to stand, be attentive, and respectfully serve the Lord and the clergy for the duration of the services.
  • Attend Regular Altar Boy meetings and retreats to learn about the services.
