Robert Alerding Server Award

2016 Altar Server Award

For many years, the Serra Club of Indianapolis has provided certificates and medals honoring graduating eighth graders who were altar servers at masses in parishes in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis.  

If you will provide the names of those boys and girls who have served masses through the eighth grade, official certificates will be prepared that can be signed by your pastor, and awarded to the graduate at a graduation ceremony or some other special event.

If you have one individual who has performed exceptionally as an altar server in the past year, please provide his/her name, and a medal will be provided acknowledging extraordinary service. In the past, some parishes have requested more than one.  However, we believe that awarding multiple “altar server of the year awards” minimizes the significance of this achievement, and ask that you please select only one server for this award.

Please send the following information in a timely manner:

  • Names of your 8th grade altar servers

  • Identity of the “altar server of the year”

  • Timing:  when you need the awards

  •  Name of Person / Contact and church address. They will be sent to parish through the archdiocese internal mail delivery.

To: Marilyn Ellis (Vocations Outreach) at:

marel123@yahoo.com, or

7638 Muirfield Pl, Indianapolis, IN 46237

Alternatively, you are welcome to provide the information to your parish Serra Club representative, who will forward them to Ms Ellis.

The Serra Club will prepare awards and provide them to you in time for your award ceremony.
