Natalie & Lauren began as Altar Servers within weeks of receiving First Holy Communion in 2nd grade. They are now in 9th grade, and are Senior Servers whose responsibility includes the encouragement and training of new servers.
On January 2, 2016, they received the “God’s Faithful Servant” award, given to select volunteers from each ministry who are “devoted to the Eucharist and the interests of the Catholic faith.”
The award was given by our parish, St. Catherine of Siena Roman Catholic Church in Kennesaw, GA, and at the request of Father Junot Nelvy who oversees the Altar Server Ministry.
