Purpose of the Society
To form a worthy guard of honor to our Divine Eucharistic King in whose Service we willingly assume the dignity and honor of becoming Knights of the Altar
To render faithful, reverent and edifying service to God by assisting His visible representatives, the Bishops and Priests, in offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and in all other liturgical and devotional functions
To enkindle in the hearts of the faithful whom we represent at the altar, greater piety and devotion by performing the duties of our holy office and by good example in our daily lives
Finally, to insure the continued and efficient function of the Knights of the Altar as a society by attending meetings and giving of our service to the Church
It is of utmost importance to chose the right type of boys to serve at the altar. This fact cannot be stressed too much. Our Lord said to His Apostles, "You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you." So too with altar servers, The Chaplain chooses those who are to become servers. Practices are the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month - 10:00AM to Noon. Lunch is provided.
If interested in joining, please give your name to Fr. Nichols.
