So I’m an altarboy at my parish, and since I’ve been trained and know the basic rundown of the liturgy, and since I’m still on Summer holiday and go to daily Mass regularly, I want to assist the priest on daily Mass also. Some parishioners who go to daily Mass also suggested that I assist during the daily Mass because it makes the liturgy look better (someone to ring the altar bells, assist the priest in preparing the chalice, etc…)
I asked my priest after Mass this morning about it and he said that he has no problem if I assist at daily Mass and that it was up to me if I wanted to assist, but I asked another older altarserver (who also happens to be my godfather) and he told me that it’s unnecessary to assist at daily Mass and that there have never been any altarboys at the parish assisting at daily Mass. I really want to assist at daily Mass because I love being close to the altar and near the Holy Sacrifice and enhancing the liturgical experience of the congregation, but I feel somewhat obligated to obey my godfather to not assist at daily Mass… :shrug: So what should I do? Sorry if this sounds like a dumb question.
Thanks and God bless.
