Acolytes

 

RECOGNITION, PROMOTION and INDUCTION

INTO THE ORDER OF ACOLYTES

 Sunday, June 4, 2017

Today we honor and celebrate the Order of Acolytes. The ministry of acolytes can be traced back to the 3rd century.  The word “acolyte” refers to one who follows, attends, and serves the needs of the priest in the Eucharist.  At every service a team of 3 Acolytes serves on the worship team in a number of different important roles. Youth, grades 5-12, are invited to be trained and coached into this important ministry. Acolyte teams work together and serve on a rotating basis.

 

In 2015, we reignited this ministry and inducted 16 youth into a newly formed Order of Acolytesand presented each one with a wooden cross to wear as a sign of their vows. In 2016, we inducted 2 new youth to the ministry and watched all of these young people grow in skill, knowledge and commitment to this important ministry.

 

Today we will be inducting 2 new youth into this vibrant ministry awarding them their wooden crosses. We will also be advancing 2 youth, having completed their first year of service and awarding them their silver crosses. This is also a wonderful time to honor and thank all youth who have served faithfully in this ministry over the past year.

 

Acolytes who have served faithfully this year include:

 

Ella Binder, Gabrielle Boileau, Maya Crouse, Ryan Crouse, Jocelyn Dessin,

Matt Gmeiner, Kyle Klosterman, Casey McCord, Maria McCord, Emma Reeves,

Kenneth Skoug, Meganne Skoug, Karen Sole and Michael Zuckerman

 

We are so very grateful to each of them, and to their families who provide support, encouragement and help in this ministry. This is truly the work of many people and for that we give thanks to God. If any youth are interested in exploring this wonderful way to grow and serve, please contact us and we will be happy to meet with you so that you can join us in this important ministry. Contact Rev. Bruce Campbell for more information.

 

Faithfully,

Your Acolyte Coaches & Support Team:

James Boileau, Rev. Bruce Campbell, Laura Good, Lana Klosterman, Ralph Reeves & Jerry Cuper
