Altar Boys

Alter Boys are young males typically 8 to 12 years of age who assist the priest during the Mass ceremony.  They escort the priest onto the the altar platform and also when he leaves.  They ring bells and get the vessels of water and wine that the priest pours into his chalice.  Sometimes they carry a cross at a procession in the church.
