Sunday Church Series - The Acolytes

Acolyte - A person who assists the celebrant in the performance of liturgical rites.

On Christmas Eve, the acolytes at Independent Presbyterian Church brought light to each and every member of our congregation at the conclusion of our Service of Nine Lessons and Carols.

Very beautiful. There is nothing quite like candlelight.

The same notion is done in Christmas Eve services here, though I've never heard the term acolytes used outside of Catholic or Orthodox traditions.
