Acolytes perform ceremonial duties during the 10:30 a.m. service on Sunday morning and at special seasonal services. They carry crosses and torches, light candles, and assist the priests at the altar. St. Andrew’s is proud to have the youth of our parish participate in worship with such responsibilities. Training sessions are scheduled throughout the year as needed and on an individual basis.

Children's Chapel resumes September 5!
Our first Children's Chapel is set for September 5. We are expanding our program to include recreation on the playground. In fact, we will meet there on Sundays beginning at 10:15 am. Lessons will be based on Bill Gordh's Building A Children's Chapel One Story at a Time as well as the readings from the Episcopal Liturgical calendar. We like to treat our Children's Chapel as a 'one-room schoolhouse' where all children aged 3 - 5th grade learn together, the older ones helping the younger ones to understand God's abundant love for them. To that end, recreation on the playground will be followed by Bible storytime and a craft with children returning to the church to join their parents for communion. A small snack will also be provided. Parents are always welcome to participate in Children's Chapel - We love their input and extra hands and may need the extra supervision at times. Our kick-off lesson will involve decorating the sidewalks with messages of God's love. We look forward to seeing you there!

For a person who was baptized at an early age, Confirmation provides an opportunity to make a “mature public affirmation of faith and the commitment to the responsibilities of Baptism,” (BCP 412).  The Confirmation process is also appropriate for those who were Confirmed in another tradition but are interested in becoming Episcopalians (Reception), or for those who feel compelled to reaffirm the commitment they made at some earlier time in their life (Reaffirmation).  A date for the beginning of the next process has not yet been set, but please call the office (595-0371) or let Marc know if you have questions or are interested in making this important commitment to your faith.
