Here is a tool to assist in training altar servers for their ministry. The primary purpose of this book is to give the servers an understanding of what ministry is, what liturgy is, and what their role in it is. It gives them tips on how to increase the prayerfulness of the liturgy by the way they move and sit. It explains the concept of ministry and lists what is expected of those who participate in this ministry. It relates the ministry of the server to that of the rest of the ministers, including the members of the assembly. The book presents an overview of the liturgical year as well as brief explanations of the various parts of the Mass, followed by a description of the servers role in each part. This is done in general terms, since each parish will have its own specific procedures. There is a brief look at what to expect if serving at special occasions such as baptisms, weddings, funerals, and the Triduum liturgies. One chapter gives an illustrated glossary of the vessels, books, vestments, and other church furnishings. The final chapter offers a sample list of possible items to be included in a commitment form.
