I have to tell you about this. We have began training new altar servers yesterday. These are very excited end-of-the year fourth graders we are talking to here, from now on known as "The Rookies."
College-aged daughter, Cait, who is known around our church altar server circle as "The Server Pro" because she is always jumping up to fill in at Mass when one of the "kids" neglect their server duty had the dubious job of helping me train altar servers in our parish. I recruited her because:
1. I'm in Family Life Ministry and somehow that job fell to me to pick up and run with.
2. She is always jumping up to help serve when...one of the "kids" neglect their server duty..."
3. I've never been a server, (we didn't have girl servers when I was a kid) so she knows more than me.
