DIOCESAN ACOLYTE FESTIVAL

On February 11, 2017, Andrew, Michael, Jon, Jamie and Mother Martha attended and participated in the Diocesan Acolyte Festival at Trinity Cathedral in Trenton. This was a day-long celebration of this ministry. The theme: the Saints of God offered several workshops: the basic course in processions, procedures and teamwork, developing skills to work effectively, music, games and practical tips for teambuilding; there was also a Saint's Scavenger Hunt to learn about the cathedral. This is our Diocese with Acolytes from all the churches attending; however, this festival is held around the country at various churches. At the end of the day, the celebration of the Holy Eucharist was held with parents and guests attending. What a festive day with banners, vestments, processional crosses, torches, thuribles (the vessels that carry the incense) and our new young acolytes learning new skills and renewing their enthusiasm for liturgy. We welcome Michael and Andrew as our new acolytes at Holy Spirit.
