Rite of the Institution of Acolytes
Watch as Cardinal Seán O’Malley, OFM Cap., Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Boston, presides at Mass and gives seminarians the Institution of Acolyte
The installation Mass plays an important role in the formation of these men in their journey towards becoming priests. As an acolyte, each man’s primary role will be assisting the deacon and priest during Mass. They may also serve as Extra-ordinary Ministers of Holy Communion at Mass, bring Holy Eucharist to the sick, and participate in other tasks while aiding the priest and deacon during liturgical celebrations.
