Anyone over the age of 11 can serve at Good Shepherd in processional and liturgical duties. We are always happy for more to join in the processional parade, and we will train you!
As skills increase, acolytes gain responsibility. You begin with bearing a candle, then may "graduate" to becoming a crucifer and carrying the cross. Slowly but surely, table service is learned and mastered. Some acolytes go on to become thurifers and vergers.
For more information about becoming an acolyte, please contact Cathy Kennedy.
