My parish is having training for altar servers in a couple weeks. We are in need of more servers. I teach 4th grade catechism and want to inspire my students to become servers. If the Holy Spirit gives me true inspiration I will distribute something (a letter most likely) to all the children eligible to be servers (with Father’s permission of course). Otherwise I will stick to a talk to my catechism students and pray for the best. I have read “Letters to an Altar Boy” by Rev. David E. Rosage and have a couple ideas but it is a bit dated.
What do you think would inspire children (4th grade and older) to become servers at Mass?
How can I communicate this inspiration to the children?
Parents with children who are servers: What makes your child want to serve?
