Faithfully serving Catholics in Cedar Rapids, IA since 1858
The service of our altar servers to Immaculate Conception is a serious responsibility, and the community is very grateful for their sacrifice of time and talent.
It is a very great honor to be an altar server at the Lord’s altar for any Mass. The altar server helps the priest in those things which he does at the altar during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and other liturgical events. The server also sets a good example to the whole congregation, since he/she is highly visible and able to help the people in church to also be reverent. Many vocations to the priesthood have come from young men serving the priest at the altar.
Boys and girls are eligible to serve once they are in 3rd grade. Training is held several times a year. Call the parish office at 362-7181 for more information.
