WHAT ARE THE STANDING RULES?
The attitude that Altar Society members bring to their work is all-important. With sincere devotion of mind and body, they should strive to make their service an acceptable offering to our Lord. Altar Society members will make their Christian witness with quiet rejoicing. Altar Society members make their work a sacred duty, and their acceptance of the priest’s invitation is the indication of their willingness to work under the priest’s directions and guidance. All suggestions and ideas are properly directed to the priest for his consideration, acceptance, or rejection. It is the priest’s responsibility to make final decisions.
