I am a lifelong Catholic and I don’t want to give out my city, but it’s quite a small town altogether (I don’t know how many live in this city, probably around 200-300.) Anyway, not all of those people are Catholic, in fact, very few are, which means we have a small church of around 80 people and there are usually around 40-60 people at church per mass. Part of why attendance is so low is because we have mass on Saturdays at four PM and there are no other mass times offered at our church. I am a server, my mom is THE only cantor at church, and this means we sing and serve every week, which means I rarely get to sit with my dad at church (and I’m sure he feels lonely as I’m an only child, so no one really sits with him outside of the homily, which is when my mom sits down in his pew.) Anyway, there are only about five servers and one of them very rarely serves. Our family goes every week, and the other servers have busy lives which means I serve almost every week too! This has gone on in the last 2-3 years and I have been serving for nearly 7 years. In my parish, as a tradition, serving is really something for kids age 8-18 and I feel like it’s best to keep that tradition, but I’m 17 and if I do that, there will not be any servers at church and I don’t want that to happen. Any tips to get more people to sing and serve?
