Assisting in Worship

Acolytes

Any young person in grades 7-12 may take an active role in worship by serving as an acolyte. Acolytes are trained and then assigned to serve approximately once a month, primarily on Sundays, alternating between the 9:00 and 11:15 services, as well as at festival services.

Baptismal Banners Committee

Every baptismal service at All Saints’ begins with a procession of banners created by members of this committee. The felt banners, bearing the names of the newly baptized, are given as keepsakes when the service is over.

Ushers

Our ushers extend a friendly welcome to parishioners and visitors at each service. Working in teams for three months each year, they help seat people, distribute bulletins, pass the alms basins, and assist newcomers in finding their way around the church grounds. Any confirmed parishioner may train for this work.
