The servers are girls and boys (Gr. 4+) of this parish who assist the priest during Mass and are responsible for the preparation of the sanctuary before and after Mass. Monthly meetings are held to support and encourage servers in their ministry. Occasional social gatherings.
Becoming an altar server is a great way for children to learn about their faith and realize that they have an important contribution to make to the life of their parish.
Every year, the altar servers look forward to key moments of celebration, such as BBQ's and Christmas Party.
There is always a "Server of the Month" who is recognized within the parish for outstanding service.
At the annual Altar Servers' Awards Ceremony, hundreds of altar servers from across Toronto gather at St. Michael's Cathedral or at a designated parish to be recognized by the Archdiocese of Toronto. If you've ever wondered why some altar servers at St. Benedict were a cincture (rope around their waste), and not a white one, its to indicate that they are recipients of this Award.
