St. James has many exciting and meaningful ways to serve the community. One opportunity is the Acolyte Ministry Team. The acolytes at St. James enthusiastically serve at the altar at all Sunday services and holy days, such as Christmas Eve and Easter. Acolytes lead the opening procession, present the Gospel Book for reading, receive the offerings from the congregation, and assist in the administration of the Holy Eucharist as needed. Acolytes receive training and are assigned to serve on a regular rotation. The acolyte ministry is open to any person age ten or older. If you are interested in becoming an acolyte, please contact Morgan Gilbert.
