Acolytes (Confirmation through 12th grade)
Sunday morning at 8:00 am and 10:15 am services and holidays
Some training required

Acolytes are the young people of the congregation in grades 8 through 12 who help with the worship service. They serve as examples for worshippers, leaders of the congregation during the service, and assistants for the clergy and lay ministers. Acolytes participate in most of the ceremonies of the Church. This Ministry gives young people an opportunity to assume a leadership position in the Parish, learn Episcopal traditions, and to actively participate in its services in a very unique and memorable way.  St. John’s youth become eligible to serve as acolytes during confirmation; if not confirmed may serve from 9th grade and up with the intention of being confirmed during the year. Acolytes also participate regularly in the fall Acolyte Festival at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC.
