Alongside with the birth of San Juan Nepomuceno Parish in June 15, 1965, the group was also born, making it one of the oldest ministry/organization in our parish. However, it was only in December 30, 1978 when it was formally recognized as Knights of the Altar through the leadership of its three pioneers: Alfred Ureta, Tony Marifosque Jr., and Roy Razon. The three were tasked then by then parish priest, Msgr. Juan Bautista, whose concern for altar boys was very intense.
From then on, the Knights of the Altar became a brotherhood of boys and young adolescents centered to Christ, their brother and leader, and lived in joyful friendship. The group is built on the Word of God, strengthened by the Eucharist and Prayer and bears fruit youthful service to others.
In 1982, Rev. Fr. George Atok, SDB who was assigned to the SJN Parish then, registered the group with the National Council of the Knights of the Altar, under the banner of the Salesian Youth Movement. Because of the affiliation, the group was raised a step higher – they were able to join some national events and meet altar boys of other parishes from all over the country. Indeed, it was a great opportunity for the boys.
In 1984, Tony Aquino & Renato Bernardo introduced the Juniors & Seniors. In the same year, the parents of the members were tapped to actively involve themselves in the foundation of their sons.
In 1988, Ferdie Manguerra had to cut his term in order to enter the seminary. Federick Obcemia assumed responsibility and led the group from 1989 to 1992. With him, came the Golden Age of KOA with the set of traditions like the Gospel Share-in, Kamping, KOAlympics (Palarong K), Mula sa Puso Project (Now PamasKOA), Halloween party, Fun Day, Bihis Sto. Nino and Parangal.
From 1992 to 1996, other youth leaders led the group in different functions and activities. Among them where Gary Santos, Joselito Malana, Arnhel Bassallote, Erwin Ibeas, and Felix Competente. Leonardo Flores has been the group adviser since 1996.
Following the guidelines set by PCM II, the group was renamed Ministry of Acolytes in 1997 with Lito Esguerra, Lito Malana and Felix Competente as coordinators with the help of the core group, Ariel Andrade, Geruel Fabia, Nestor Abustan, Mark Don Cerada and Erwin Javaluyas.
In 1999, the group was in a limbo due to unavoidable circumstances. But the Ministry survived with the help of youth leaders that took leadership at their very young age. With this, a helping hand reached the ministry, from the unlikely victor of the Golden Age.
So in 2000, the group had its reformation under Bro. Frederick Obcemia, OP (now a priest) with the help of former seminarian, Jan Paolo Lucero and the group of Youth Leaders spear-headed by Barry Dela Cruz. The entirety underwent various talks, recollections, activities and retreats that have enhanced the group’s spirituality, personality and camaraderie.
In 2001, Jan Paolo Lucero had to cut short his term due to unavoidable grounds. Barry Dela Cruz assumed responsibility as the Ministry Head with the help of the New Core Group: John Greggy Go, Jeffrey Brucelo, Sonny Ching, Jacob Cerada, Virgil Rivera and Ruel Tengco.
In 2002, the group was renamed as Ministry of Altar Servers, in accordance with the Liturgical Commission of the Archdiocese of Manila. The group regained its pride and valor by restoring traditional activities and memoirs.
The following year was the publication of the constitutional By- Laws. In Barry Dela Cruz’s term comes the remarkable traditions such as: House to house rosary praying, Bisita Iglesia, Sportsfests, Retreats, Recollections, Christmas Leagues, Anniversary Celebrations and Awarding.
In 2005, Jacob Cerada was elected Ministry Head. The constitutional By-Laws of the Ministry was also revised and approved to the body (members of MOAS) and by the Parish Priest. It was Sis. Ma.Rosanna Santos who became the group’s adviser with the help of the new set of officers.
There were two years limit for the term assigned by then Parish Priest, Rev. Fr. Antonio Navarrete, Jr. for each Ministry Heads and coordinators of which members of the Parish Pastoral Council (PPC). Juan Nicholas Santos was elected Ministry Head on 2007. Under his term, the Ministry celebrated its 30th Anniversary on 2008. The new era for KOA, Acolytes and MOAS Have started with new faces of core group: Bren Creus, Jonathan Flores, Elvis Blancaflor and Mark Brian Espino.
After his term on 2009, Elvis Blancaflor was then appointed as Ministry Head. Opportunities came for the group to join Parish activities; Parish Youth outing and sporfests. There was also a series of formations by the San Carlos Seminary for the Altar Servers done every year.
In November 2011, Mark Brian Espino spear-headed the Ministry activities and took over to preside ministry meetings and external representations making him appointed as the new Ministry Head. With the help of his advisers: Sis. Ma. Rosanna Santos and Bro. Sonny Ching, He called for a reformation to the Members. The Ministry hopes to fulfill the challenge of the Holy Father, Benedict XVI of New evangelization. New hope arises as the group faces its 10th year since it was renamed as “Ministry of Altar Servers”. Altar Servers of San Juan Nepomuceno these days are hoping to reach the victory it has during its Golden Age before it Celebrates its 35th Anniversary on 2013. With these comes a new hope of completely rebuilding the group physically and spiritually continuously.....
Sacristan, KOA, Acolytes, MOAS, Altar Servers many given names but one absolute definition, we’re called to serve in the Altar of Christ. To Follow Him and be servant of all!
