Acolytes or Altar servers assist the clergy during services. Annunciation Church altar service is open to all Orthodox Christian boys who would like to learn more about our Divine Liturgy services and how to serve as helpers to our priests. Participants of all ages must possess a sense of reverence, respect and an eagerness to learn and serve. Altar servers are led by adult volunteers.
Altar servers must be on time each Sunday and participate at the special services throughout the year.
