    The acolytes main function is to assist with the Mass by way of assisting the priest at the altar with the liturgical vessels, generally trying making his service easier, and in an incomplete way, stepping in for a deacon if there is none present. For example, an acolyte does not proclaim the Gospel, but can dress the altar if there is no deacon. His primary duty is ordered towards the eucharist and the care of the sacred vessels.
    The Right of Acolytes is part of Dave Kraemer's Deacon formation. The ceremony took place during Mass at St. Benedict on Sunday, November 8, 2020.
