Saint Tarcisius was a 12 year-old Roman acolyte, who was martyred for his defence of the Blessed Sacrament, in one of the fierce persecutions of the third century. He was carrying the Holy Eucharist to those in prison, and was killed on the way while preventing its profanation. He is one of the Patron saints of altar servers, and his example reminds us of the reverence that we must have for the Body of Christ when we are serving in the Sanctuary.
The Society of St Tarcisius is a sodality of servers of the traditional Latin Mass at the Parish of Mary Immaculate of Lourdes.
