Guidelines for Gift Bearers:
Take a moment to clear your mind while the offertory song is being sung. Remember that you are representing the entire parish as we return to God a small part of the many blessings that He has given to us.
The unleavened Bread and Wine that you carry will be consecrated to become the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. Treat it with reverence and respect.
Once all of the gifts have been presented to Father, he may say a few words of thanks to the Gift Bearers, then Father, the Deacon and the Altar Servers move to carry the gifts to the altar. The Three Gift Bearers, still standing in a line in front of the altar, bow together toward the altar, turn and return down the aisle to their seats.
