Our parish Altar Servers assist the priest at all weekend Masses and
when available on weekdays. This ministry provides an opportunity for
our young people to serve God and their parish family. It allows them to
play an intricate role in the Mass itself and by their example they
enable others to pray and enter into the mystery of the celebration.
Boys and Girls serve at Mass on a regular scheduled basis. Altar
Servers assist the priests and ministers, and set an example for all
people, especially the young, during our liturgies.
Boys and Girls who have received their First Holy Communion and completed 2nd Class are eligible to serve. As per parish practice, the parish adheres
to its Child Protection Policy and Guidelines.

Hazelwood’s Rota will be available shortly.
