Acolyte Training, church
Sunday, October 8, 2023, 11:45 AM
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.
We will have acolyte training for any new/interested people on Sunday September 17 and October 8 after church (estimated 11:45am-12:30pm). You may come to one or the other, but don't need to be at both. The training will be dependent upon the attendees, but might include first timer information, moving up to crucifier practice, and more. If you have questions about acolyting or want to sign up for a training, please email the office at [email protected].
