Church Of Our Saviour
200 NW 3rd Street
Okeechobee, Florida
The ministry of the acolyte is one of the oldest ministries in the church and one of the most well known. Acolytes are the assistants of the deacons who in turn are the assistants of the bishop or priest.

An acolyte assists in worship by carrying a processional cross, lighting candles, holding the Gospel book, holding candles or "torches", assisting a deacon or priest set up and clean up at the altar, swinging a censer or thurible, or carrying the incense boat, handing the offering plates to ushers, and many other tasks as seen fit by the priest or acolyte warden.

Time Requirements: During the services, approximately 11/2 hours.
