What is an Acolyte, you ask?
In contemporary Anglicanism, an Acolyte is a person who assists at the altar and the title generally covers not only servers, torchbearers, and lighters of candles but also crucifers, thurifers, and banner-bearers.

An Acolyte’s duties and training

What does a vested Acolyte look like?

     At St. John’s we vest in red cassocks and square collared surplices; some churches vest with rounded collars on their surplices.

   A surplice is a loose white outer ecclesiastical vestment usually of waist to knee length with large open sleeves.
