Ministries

Acolytes
Prior to 1972, Acolytes were considered the highest of the minor orders. Although Acolytes do not receive the sacrament of Holy Orders, they were once considered a part of the clergy. Since then, Acolytes may be any baptized layman. The term "altar server" may also be used for those who assist the Priest during Mass.
