Easter morning debut: a first time server assists Peter (the thurifer) by holding the boat containing incense. While his face seems to show concern about his first time serving at Mass, in reality, he had something stuck in his eye... Peter gently guided him along throughout the Mass, helping him to be in the right place at the right time. I think he grew a few inches in the process!
For five or so years, we have been responsible for training and scheduling the altar servers at Sacred Heart. Enriching the spiritual lives of young people by bringing them closer to Christ (literally!) gives great consolation. For the most part, the training has been carried out by Zachary, with other servers (including Joseph and Peter) also assisting and coaching our new servers as they learn the ropes.
Zachary and two awesome servers assist at two baptisms on Easter Morning.
As acolyte, Zachary incenses Father before incensing the people at the beginning of the Liturgy of the Eucharist during Easter morning Mass.
