Altar Server Investiture Ceremony at St. Matthew

This photo was taken at the conclusion of an altar server investiture ceremony at St. Matthew the Apostle Church in Indianapolis on March 8, 1964. The new altar servers were in grades 5 through 8 in the Indianapolis North Deanery faith community’s school. Appearing nearest to the altar in the recessional line is St. Matthew’s pastor, Father Andrew Diezeman. The ceremony was sponsored by the Serra Club of Indianapolis, which works to foster priestly and religious vocations.
