Welcome to the Altar Serving Ministry at St Agatha’s Parish
Altar Serving is such a important Ministry at St Agatha’s Catholic Church. Altar Servers assist the Priests. The Parish Community see Altar Servers as role models by the level of reverence they show at Church. It is such a humble and reverend way of contributing to the Mass.
