Altar Servers


Altar Servers

“You are blessed to be ‘particularly close to Christ Jesus in the Eucharist. You have the enormous privilege of being close to the altar, close to the Lord.’” (Pope Benedict XVI)

The altar servers at the Church of Saint Pius X assist the priests at Sunday Mass, weddings, funerals and special liturgies. They are an important and much appreciated part of our Liturgies. This ministry promotes a closer relationship with the ever-present Body of Christ in the lives of those who serve.

All interested 4th graders and older who wish to serve will be trained. Altar servers can choose the Mass time(s) they prefer. Schedules are prepared in advance through an internet based Ministry Scheduler that honors volunteers’ preferences and availability and allows requests for substitutes in the event plans change.

If you are interested in being an altar server, please speak with one of our priests, contact the parish office at (914) 725-2755 (or or click on this link.
