This booklet offers a detailed instruction for altar servers who provide a special ministry in the celebration of the liturgy. It is a handy guide for those entering this ministry.
And Pope John Paul II’s 2001 address to servers (chapter nine) is inspiring.
“The Ministry of Servers . . .is specifically for children, but suitable for all. It has a great introduction on the meaning of this ministry.”
The Ministry of Servers offers a handy, straightforward and meticulous guide for those young men and women called to the ministry of server. The completeness of this work will provide an invaluable tool for pastoral leaders entrusted with the responsibility of forming liturgical ministers.

Fr. Kwatera provides a new edition of an old friend. Servers who use this guide will feel a sense of pride in their ministry as they develop a deeper appreciation of the importance of their role. Fr. Michael lays out the duties of servers at Mass and other devotions in a way that is clear and concise while respecting the differences in detail that a server may encounter. This guide will provide a useful and inspiring tool to those who train servers.
