Therefore, in the liturgy, you are much more than simple "helpers of the parish priest." Above all, you are servers of Jesus Christ, of the eternal High Priest. Thus, you, altar servers, are called in particular to be young friends of Jesus.

When you are an altar server, you learn how to safely handle all of the fire and smoke at Little Flower. 

It is you who will learn to light the candles around the altar, how to hold the flame near your body, and how to light the coals for the incense.

Being an altar server at Little Flower means that you are up close and personal with the action of the Mass. As the priests raises the chalice and host, you are only a few feet away. As the priests washes the feet of people on Holy Thursday, you are there holding the towels. As the music begins, it is you holding the cross that begins the procession. 

You are close to the sacred, and your role is important to the Mass.
