What is an Altar Server?

Altar Servers are lay liturgical ministers whose main role is to assist the priest in celebrating the mass. They are in charge of holding the roman missal when the priest prays the collect prayer during mass, set up the altar during the preparation of the gifts, carry the processional candles, and the cross during the procession.
