How to Serve at the Altar is an instructional aid for young men learning to serve the Low Mass according to the 1962 Missale Romanum. Serving at Holy Mass is a time-honored privilege for Catholic young men, because altar boys have the opportunity to assist the priest at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass by reciting prayers and performing functions that are usually reserved to ordained Acolytes.
When you order How to Serve at the Altar you get:
1. The 54 page instructional booklet
2. An instructional audio CD
3. A Laminated Card with Responses for Altar Boys.
Because serving at Holy Mass is such a sacred act, it is important for Altar Boys to learn their duties well and to perform then with great reverence and devotion.
Serving at the Altar will assist the altar boy in two very important ways: Latin pronunciation and proper actions within the sanctuary.
