Mission Statement: An altar server at Saint Raphael Parish stands ready to serve the Lord in the Sacrifice of the Altar, encountering, and helping others to encounter, Jesus in His Eucharistic Presence.

The Altar Server Ministry consists of students in grades 5 to 12 and adults who serve Funeral Masses.
ASM NEWS: Season of Advent
During the season of Advent we prepare for the coming of the light of Christ into the world. One of the ways we celebrate is by the using an Advent wreath and lighting a new candle at each weekend Mass.
On the weekends, just prior to the beginning of Mass, the priest will light the appropriate candle(s) and say a prayer.
On weekdays, the servers are responsible for lighting the appropriate candle(s) prior to the beginning of Mass. (See numbers in the picture). There is a stool in our vesting room to assist you in reaching these candles.
Remember also to extinguish the candles after every Mass. There is a snuffer on teh counter in the sacristy by the computer.
Welcome Fr. Dan Schlegel!
His chalice is pictured to help you recognize it when dressing the altar.
Join us for Spiritual & Practical Formation - December 11 at 5:00 in the Church!
All servers are encouraged to attend. Please RSVP in your MSP email sent Dec 4th
