Parents are always searching for ways to increase their child’s involvement with the Catholic faith. Some great ways parents do this are through youth groups, religious education classes, reading the Bible together at home, and plenty of other ways too! We recently read a post about one really awesome way to get your child more involved. It listed some reasons why your child should be an altar server.
Being an altar server is a true honor! You get to be involved with the Mass first hand. That’s more than a lot of Catholics can say. To be that involved at an early age through altar serving is a blessing. The author of the post gave some really great reasons why your child should be an altar server. The one that we liked best was the respect and understanding for the Mass they’ll gain. There are plenty of Catholics who sometimes don’t fully comprehend what’s going on during Mass. When you ARE part of the Mass, the chances that you’ll know what’s going on and understand it are increased significantly. This is a wonderful thing to learn when you’re young.
