Age requirement for liturgical ministers?

Question: 

Does the church laws say anything about the proper age when one can become a liturgical minister, like lector, usher, altar server?

--Aggravated in Angleton

Answer: 

In the documents on the liturgy, the universal church law does not regulate the age of liturgical ministers. These are regulated by diocesan law or local custom. Many dioceses state that a Extraordinary minister of Holy Communion must be completely initiated (baptized, confirmed and have receive their first Holy Communion).
