Altar Boys

“When Mass is being celebrated, the sanctuary is filled with countless angels who adore the Divine Victim immolated on the altar.”
– St. John Chrysostom

Serving the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is both an honor and a privilege. Those boys interested in serving must:

  • Receive First Holy Communion prior to serving
  • Be willing and able to learn how to serve both High and Low Masses (training will be provided).
  • They must also learn the Latin responses for Mass. The boys are not expected to understand every word when starting out. Nonetheless, they should know at least "the gist."

Interested boys should contact Fr. Franco: fr.franco@stjosephrichmond.org

Serving Practice

Altar boys practice every third Saturday of the Month from 1:00pm to 4:00pm.
