Altar Server Vestments, proper type

Question What vestments should altar servers wear at Mass?

Answer According to the Ceremonial of Bishops, n. 65: "The vestment common to ministers of every rank is the alb, tied at the waist with a cincture, unless it is made to fit without a cincture. An amice should be put on first if the alb does not completely cover the minister's street clothing at the neck. A surplice may not be substituted for the alb when the chasuble or dalmatic is to be worn or when a stole is used instead of the chasuble or the dalmatic. When a surplice is worn, it must be worn with the cassock."

The dalmatic and chasuble are only worn by the priest and deacon so the vestments for altar servers are the alb with a cincture or a cassock covered by a surplice.
