The word acolyte means “server.” Acolytes, an ancient order in the liturgical life of the Church, assist the priest and the congregation in the offering of Divine Worship. Acolytes perform important duties during the liturgy such as lighting the candles, carrying the processional cross, and assisting the priest at the Altar. At St. Luke’s the ministry of acolyting is performed by youth, women and men.
