Once the altar is cleared, the servers proceed to the server bench to be seated.
The CR should pick up the Roman Missal and stand at the base of the stairs to indicate (s)he is ready for the Concluding/Thanksgiving Prayer whenever the priest stands to read. The priest says, "Let us pray
," the CR walks up the stairs to the priest’s left and holds the Roman Missal for him.
After the priest prays and the congregation responds Amen
, the CR takes the Roman Missal with him/her as (s)he returns to the altar servers’ bench and stands alongside the other servers.
The servers and the congregation sit to listen to the announcements and any speakers.
