Young men, fourth grade and older, have the awesome opportunity to serve in the Altar in both ceremonial and supportive ways. The boys learn their roles and responsibilities through workshops and on-the-job training. In ninth grade, the boys are eligible to earn the rank of a Black Robe. Acolytes are assigned to teams that rotate Sundays and serve on special feast day services. Adults are also welcome to serve as Acolyte supervisors. All adults working with youth must consent to a background check and youth protection training.
