The meaning of acolytes: The word acolyte is taken from an ancient Greek word meaning companion, attendant, or helper. Acolytes work closely with the pastors and take part in church services to help people worship God. The acolytes light and extinguish the candles on the altar and the Paschal candle when it is used. Basically, the acolyte is responsible for lighting the altar candles and other candles used in the worship service, and then extinguishing them at the end of the service. .
