Altar servers make an essential contribution to our divine worship. Adult men and boys of mature behavior are encouraged to serve in the Holy Place. By their attention to the rubrics of the Divine Liturgy and their assistance during services, they edify the congregation and give greater glory to God.
Serving within the Holy Place is a privilege and an honor. It carries with it the obligation to pray regularly, to study the Divine Liturgy, and to share in the life of the community.
