To provide a pool of dedicated Candle Bearers available throughout the year.
What the ministry is about:
Candle Bearer Ministers are a very important part of our Parish Liturgy. Candle Bearer Ministers are 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade students from our parish. During our Parish Liturgies, the Candle Bearers carry the candles in the entrance procession, they Light the Word of God during the proclamation of the Gospel, they lead the Presentation of the Gifts, and they process in the closing procession.
It is a privilege and an honor to serve as a Liturgical Minister; therefore, each Minister must be dedicated and committed to serving our community with the appropriate reverence. It is a very serious commitment. In the case of our Candle Bearer Ministry, it is not only a commitment by the Minister, but also a commitment by his/her parents. Parents are expected to have their child at his/her scheduled Masses 15 minutes before Mass begins. Punctuality is necessary.
