How do you show gratitude for young men and women who are known not only for lighting a lot of candles, carrying crosses, holding books, etc. but more importantly for a spirit of generosity and reverence at the Lord’s Table? Bishop David Ricken, the Diocese of Green Bay Vocation Directors and other priests, the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity, the Serra Club and other adults were invited to be part of an Altar Server Day at Camp Tekawitha on the feast of the Queenship of Mary, August 22, 2009.
Unique to this day was the witnessing of the Rite of Acolyte for seminarian Luke Ferris.
Bused from Manitowoc, Marinette, Oshkosh, Appleton and Green Bay, about one hundred altar servers also participated in these planned activities:
- Welcome, introductions, warm-up games
- Crowning of Mary
- Eucharist-Bishop Ricken presided
- Presentations on the Eucharist from the Diocese of Green Bay (boys) and the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity (girls)
- Swimming and volleyball
Asked what is the best thing about serving, one young person was quick to respond “just everything”. There is indeed something good happening in the Diocese of Green Bay when a young person is happy to serve.�
