Young people and adults have been assisting in the sacred mysteries of the Mass since the earliest centuries. They have helped to make the Holy Eucharist a more solemn celebration by assisting the priest at the Altar with dignity. They also provide an example of service, prayer and dedication to others in the parish. Here at Saint Mary's we encourage our young parishioners male and female ages 8 and above, who have received their first communion to join the Ministry of the Knights of the Altar. Apart from assisting at Mass this group also meets once a month to practice their ministry and spend time with one another enjoying the company of friends.
