Acolytes

Acolyte Schedule (Password protected)

The Acolyte program at St. John’s is a very important part of every worship service.  Everyone, both children and adults, are eligible to assist and be a part of the program.  Our Acolytes serve in the capacity of: Crucifer, Altar Server, Clergy Crossbearer, Torchbearers and Thurifer.  St. John’s Acolytes participate in lighting and extinguishing the candles on the altar before and following the service; carrying the crosses (and torches) during the processional and recessional hymns as well as during the Gospel procession; receiving the bread box, cruets of wine and water from the gift bearers during the offertory; in addition to serving the clergy at the altar during the preparation of the Eucharist.
