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 orderHow 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.
Building Something Beautiful For God –
To Last A Thousand Years
Our Lady of Clear Creek Abbey is a Benedictine community belonging to the Solesmes Congregation and, like other monasteries of the Solesmes Congregation, is to be counted among the institutes entirely ordered towards contemplation. It was founded in 1999 from the Abbey of Our Lady of Fontgombault in France and is located in the Diocese of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Clear Creek became an abbey in 2010 and counts 55 monks, who devote themselves to God alone in the hidden life, in silence and solitude, in constant prayer and willing penance.
After twenty years of existence, we are happy, by the grace of God, to have completed two large buildings and a sizable portion of our abbatial church. We started building the “Chapter House” to accommodate the growing number of monks and provide a Sacristy, Infirmary, classrooms and the Chapter itself. Please help us continue this arduous, but important work for the glory of God.
