I am now officially an altar server in my parish. Although my name only comes on the duty roster in May 2015, I did help out yesterday with the Palm Sunday Mass. Happily the Priest told me I did well for a 1st timer.
Does anyone have any advice on the job? I must admit there are some embarrassing aspects that I can’t do right. I know the definition of Apostolic Succession, Papal infallibility, when an ex cathedra pronouncement has been made by the Pope, transubstantiation, the Chaplet of divine Mercy, the importance of the Rosary and the role of the Saints. But I can’t remember what to call the little boat thingy the incense is carried in.:o
