All young men are encouraged to actively participate in the Divine Liturgy on Sundays and Holidays to serve our Lord as Altar Boys. This experience provides the opportunities to learn more about the faith and traditions in the Orthodox Church. The role of the Altar Boy is a genuine and an essential one in the services of the church and has a place of honor in the Divine Liturgy because he assists the Priest in so many ways. His dedication is a sign of his faith, and stands ready to serve God in a great capacity. Altar Boys are held to the discipline and standards of the honor of serving in the Altar.
All of the young men who are interested about the Altar Boy program please contact
