An Acolyte is a layperson who assists in worship by carrying the processional cross, lighting and extinguishing candles, carrying candles or torches in the processional and helping with the collection of the offering. Acolytes may be adults or children.
At St. Timothy’s, young people in grades 4 through 8 are invited to serve as torchbearers and those in grades 9 through 12 serve as the crucifer (carry the cross and assist the priest). Acolytes are regularly scheduled for the 10:15 service, and for special services as needed. Training is provided.
