Cassock and surplice

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q:  I hope that you are doing well and are having a great week so far!

I just had a quick question about the dress code for altar servers. 

If a person has left seminary formation, are they still allowed to wear a black cassock and surplice, just without a roman collar, if they are an altar server (teenager / young adult)? 

I am not sure if this is against any church norms.

Thank you so much and have a great day!


A:  That’s no trouble at all. Anyone may wear cassock and surplice for serving at Mass.
