Altar Servers

Any boy or girl who has received their First Holy Communion is welcome to become an Altar Server in either the Church of St Mary or in Ladychapel.  Prior to becoming an Altar Server, a short training programme takes place. The training programme aims to provide each child with the necessary skills to serve mass and other liturgical celebrations.

This includes learning about the order of the mass, the vestments, the sanctuary, and the sacred books and vessels used. The new altar servers serve for the first time during the Christmas season in our parish. Altar servers are co-ordinated by the parents. Parish Child Protection guidelines are followed.

If you are interested, please contact JP Reilly, the Parish Co-ordinator via the Parish Office at 01 629 3018, or by email at
