Jesus said: "Let the Children come to me."

Our parish also has something special for the little ones. To those who are 3 years of age and up, but have not received First Communion yet, there is a special opportunity to be Children of the Altar. Their duty is to be dressed the same as the Altar Servers and walk in the procession at the entrance and at the end of Mass.

St. Pope John Paul II once said to some Altar Servers who visited him: "Serving at the Eucharistic table and at the various liturgical celebrations, you draw directly 'from the wells of salvation' the strength necessary to live well today and then also to face your future more energetically."
