With a membership of over 65 active youth, the Acolyte Ministry at St. Aidan’s is dynamic! From the time they’re in 3rd grade and carrying their first torch all the way through their senior year of high school when they’re able to wear a Master Acolyte sash, being an acolyte gives our young people a chance and an opportunity to serve God and His church. These dedicated young people serve at over 100 services each year.
One reason for the success of this ministry is that the members feel they’re fulfilling an important role in the life of our parish. “Of course I’ll acolyte this year. I would never let St. Aidan’s down,” said a member of the guild. The acolytes are expected to be vested on time and to be fully engaged during the service.
