A couple of St. Joseph Catholic Church altar girls--they do a wonderful job!
My own experience with altar girls has been positive. In my more liberal days in the early 1980's I convinced my pastor that we should have them. So since about 1981 I have experienced girls serving the altar. In every parish that I have been in with girls serving, I have never seen boys dropping out. I've always encouraged altar servers to continue serving well into high school and they do! We have servers who continue into college and ask to serve when they come home from college. I'm glad that this "ministry" is opened to both. I would see no problem using them even for the Extraordinary Form of the Mass. Your thoughts.
