Having the opportunity to serve during Mass means a different type of involvement for young people.
By serving during Mass, children have so many hands on learning opportunities.
It is a wonderful way for them to learn the names of objects used during Mass, vestment pieces, and other church-related terms.
It may also give them a better understanding and appreciation for what is going on during Mass, and that is a pretty wonderful benefit.
Being an Altar Server may also encourage future religious vocations or at least give them a chance to explore the idea, so that in the future they may want to become a Lector or an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion.
Serving in the Parish is also a wonderful way to meet other Parishioners.
