Acolytes

The order of acolytes is one of the most ancient ministries in the church. The word “acolyte” means “follower” or “one who helps.” In addition to carrying flags, banners, torches and crosses during the service, acolytes also assist the Clergy of St. Martin’s with preparing the altar for Holy Communion.  These are important and vital roles that are central to our worship at St. Martin’s, and help to develop a sense of reverence and understanding for the tradition of the Episcopal worship service.

The St. Martin’s Acolyte Ministry requires a one-year commitment. We try our best to schedule you to serve at the service time of your choice. Depending on the number of acolytes, you will serve one to two times per month.

Students in 6th–12th grade are invited to serve for Sunday worship services in Christ Chapel at 8 a.m. or The Church at 9 a.m., 11:15 a.m. or 6 p.m.

If you would like to serve as an acolyte, click the button below to sign up. (must be filled out on a computer)

For more information about being an acolyte, contact Barbara Piana at 713-830-4116 or email hidden; JavaScript is required
