All ministries are on hiatus due to the pandemic.  More details to follow.

If you would like to become an altar server at St. Patrick’s:

  • Contact Michael O’Malley if you are interested at: (352) 383-8556 x 28 or via email at
  • You will be added as a third server to a Mass with a pair of more experienced servers to learn the process as an observer.
  • After experiencing the process, and if you should decide to be a scheduled server, you will be scheduled for a more detailed class to learn proper names of altar items and a more complete study of your role in the Mass.
  • The server schedule will be posted on the church website. It is the server’s responsibility to arrange for a replacement if you are unable to serve at the assigned Mass.
  • Remember that this is a commitment of the server and the parents to be present at Mass when scheduled.
  • You will be excused from faith formation class if you are scheduled to serve 11:30 a.m. Mass.
  • Please check in the Sacristy or Ministry room before Mass to be certain a minimum of two servers are present for each Mass.
  • Father Charlie is very interested in more candle bearers for the procession and Gospel Reading… please volunteer if you are not already scheduled.
Altar Servers being honored with a day of bowling to thank them for their service.
