Acolye Ministry: Director- MaryHelen Campa

Acolyte Ministry:  Are you called to serve? 

Trinity has many exciting and meaningful ways in which to serve the Lord. One opportunity for public service is the Trinity Episcopal Acolyte Ministry. If you attend the 10:15 service, you surely have noticed our sharp-looking acolytes assisting the priests and lay ministers at the altar. Perhaps you’re called to become a part of this special team.

The acolytes of Trinity Episcopal Church enthusiastically serve at the altar at all major services, including  regular Sunday Eucharists, special Holy Day events such as Christmas and Easter, and at weddings and funerals. Currently no acolytes serve at the early service, but we’re always looking for volunteers to get up early!

Ranging from elementary age to adults, our dedicated acolytes help ensure that each service is a meaningful worship experience by assisting the priests in the various liturgical activities. Acolytes lead the opening procession, present the Gospel Book for reading, receive the communion elements and offerings from the congregation, and assist in the administration of the Holy Eucharist as needed.

The role of the acolyte in the life of the worship service is one of great importance and requires dedication on the part of the acolytes, and in many cases, the parents who ensure they are at church early on the Sundays they are scheduled to serve. Acolytes must come to church with a heart sensitive to the Spirit of God, ready to hear His voice, and willing to serve.

 

The acolyte ministry is open to any person age ten or older who feels called to serve the Lord in a very special way. Acolytes must be baptized Christians and attend services on a regular basis. If not confirmed, those serving as acolytes who are old enough should do so as soon as possible to affirm their faith in the Church. The best way to learn is by doing; therefore, our acolytes train “on the job.” After receiving a couple of weeks of orientation and instruction, new acolytes are assigned to a team that serves on a regular rotation.

If you are interested in becoming an acolyte, please see Maryhelen Campa or one of the priests.
