Product Description


Ceremonies Explained for Servers may well be called the "mother
of all servers' manuals". This is the most detailed guide
available for servers and those who train and supervise them
at the altar.

In accessible language, Ceremonies covers the roles of servers
in a wide range of Catholic liturgical celebrations. These are
described in full, such as: the Mass in both the Ordinary and
Extraordinary forms, the seven sacraments, the ceremonies of
Holy Week, the Liturgy of the Hours, funeral rites, the liturgies
that are celebrated by a bishop and major blessings.
Ceremonies also provides accurate explanations for each of
these rites, with Catholic teaching on the liturgy and sacraments
and a history of the ministry of servers. The skills,
techniques and discipline involved in serving are explained,
such as: how a procession should move, how to assist with
incense, team-work and responding in emergencies and
unforeseen situations.

A spirituality of this ministry runs through the manual, with
an underlying theme of service and vocation. In an encouraging
personal way, Ceremonies sets out high spiritual ideals
that can inspire and guide those who enhance Catholic worship
through their ministry.

  • An in-depth, detailed manual for all those who assist the clergy in various ways in carrying
  • out Catholic liturgical ceremonies according to the Roman Rite
  • There is no other book like this on the market
  • Primarily addressed to altar servers, of all ages, but should also be used by those who
  • train them: priests, deacons, seminarians, sacristans, teachers, pastoral associates and youth leaders
  • Makes a great gift book from parents or grandparents for older children and young people who serve at Mass in their parishes, schools and colleges
