‘Grande’ servers give thanks

Fr Raymond Francis (right) prays over altar servers at the Altar Servers Mass at St Francis of Assisi, Sangre Grande.

Altar servers of the Sangre Grande/Coryal/Toco/Matelot cluster were encouraged to “focus more on training and preparation of the altar” while building a personal relationship and prayer life with Jesus.

Fr Raymond Francis, parish priest issued this advice to 85 altar servers at a Thanksgiving Mass hosted by St Francis of Assisi RC, Sangre Grande on July 22.

In his homily, Fr Francis said it is often heard of altar servers “falling by the wayside” after they leave the ministry by turning to other vices and not to the person of Jesus Christ. He told the young people to also think about their “high points and low points” in their service to God, and the times when they were rostered to serve and they did not show up.
