Acolytes

Trinity’s Acolyte Guild is composed of 5th-12th graders who serve on a rotating basis at the 10:30 AM worship service. Acolytes are an integral part of our entrance and exit processionals. Vested in white robes, they carry the processional cross, the torches, and the priest’s cross. During the service, a Gospel procession, made up of four acolytes and the Gospel reader, emphasizes the importance of the teachings of Christ. Acolytes also bring forth the offerings to the Altar. The ministry of our acolytes underscores the importance of our young people and reflects the high value that Episcopalians place on participatory worship. Dr. Julie Fowler serves at the Acolyte coordinator.
