A few reminders for our new servers:
1. Please be alert and aware- you are serving God! Sit up, try not to “fidget” with things.
2. When carrying the candles…. KEEP THEM LEVEL! Some of you are very small and may need to have an experienced server show you this. We try very hard not to spill any wax on the floor. We have been finding wax leading to where the servers sit, so try very hard not to spill!
3. The Cross may be heavy for new servers… if you carry it, keep it high and steady!
4. Be sure to wear the right shoes (no bright light up sneakers please), and pants- jeans are OK sometimes but try to wear dress pants or school pants most of the time.
5. No gum please.
6. Please be a little early… on weekends you have to put on robes, light candles, etc. So be there 15 min. before Mass! On the weekdays, it is the same- we just have a smaller Mass in the Church Chapel on M,T, W.
