An Acolyte serves as a minister of the liturgy. They assist in the celebration of Mass by preparing the altar, the gift table, and the presider’s table. They light the candles, carry the cross and hold the books for the presider to read. During Communion, they assist with the distribution of the Eucharist and clear the altar. Seton has always encouraged parent/child teams to serve together, but individual adult and youth acolytes are always welcome. Youth acolytes should be age 11 and older. Senior acolytes should be Confirmed. An acolyte manual is available and individual training takes about 2 hours.
