Sign up to be an Acolyte

The most important part of our common life is worship, and central to our worship week by week are those who help carry out the work of liturgy as acolytes. If you are interested in joining this important ministry, especially if you will be moving into the 7th grade this fall, now is the time to sign up. We will be forming teams prior to the beginning of our fall worship schedule in September 2017. Please sign up by sending your name, email, and telephone number to

Acolyting offers young people in grades 7-12 the opportunity to serve as ministers in Cathedral worship.  Acolytes lead processions, take responsibility for lighting and extinguishing candles and assist priests and deacons in preparation for communion.  There are currently six teams - each headed by one or two senior acolytes.  During the school year, one team is assigned to each Cathedral service; in the summer, two teams are usually assigned to the 10:00 Sunday service.  Throughout the year, acolytes may also be asked to serve at weddings, funerals and other special services.  If you have questions, please contact the Cathedral office at 771.7300.

Thank you for answering the call to serve as an acolyte. God’s peace and love to you all.
