The altar server is an assistant to the clergy during a religious service. Their role involves providing support at the altar, which may include fetching and carrying items or ringing the altar bell. The altar server may wear a variety of garments including albs, cassocks or surplices. Often, an alb is chosen for the altar server because of its simplicity and versatility.
Altar server albs are typically white and may have a sash of varying colors tied around the waist. The alb is ankle length and has large, billowing sleeves. It may also have a collar or hood. Altar server albs are available in several styles including front wrap, traditional and monastic.
