UCA News provides this feature on a two-day altar server seminar in Cambodia. Though brief, it’s an interesting snapshot in liturgical ministry.
- The people were of ages 13 to 23–not a well-populated age bracket for American servers, generally.
- Two days of instruction: that would be a significant time commitment for your average American server, let alone a teen or young adult.
Ngourn Sorithy, a 19-year-old altar server, said she was amazed by the seminar. She now knew more clearly the meaning of ceremonies and each gesture. “It made us know better our church, Lord and God. As a result, we may fulfill our undertakings with deep respect,” she added.
