Other Ministries for St. Paul Youth

Altar Server Ministry led by Matt Ernde

The Altar Server is a male or female member of the assembly who assists the priest and deacon during the Eucharist and other liturgical ceremonies so the liturgy can be conducted with grace and reverence. Altar Servers should be active and full participants in the celebration with the understanding that they are leaders of the assembly. The altar server models the activity of the assembly and by singing, praying and keeping silence can enhance the worship of the assembly.

To serve at the Altar of God is a privilege granted to boys or girls. To serve at Saint Paul you must be at least entering into the 5th grade.

For more information:

"...the liturgy is the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed; at the same time it is the font from which all her power flows." -Sacrosanctum Concilium, 10

Boy Scouts

Boy Scouts get away from it all! They camp, hike, and fish in the great outdoors. They get together in troops, and try out new experiences.
Boy Scouting is available to boys who are 11 through 17 years old, or who have earned the Arrow of Light Award, or have completed the fifth grade.

The purpose of the Boy Scouts of America, incorporated on February 8, 1910, and chartered by Congress in 1916, is to provide an educational program for boys and young adults to build character, to train in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and to develop personal fitness.
