Altar Servers – Guild of St. Stephen
The parish actively promotes the value of serving at the altar and is fortunate in having a good number of talented servers at each weekend Mass.
Altar serving is open to anyone who has made their First Holy Communion. To become an Altar Server, simply approach the parish priest, or one of the Altar Servers immediately after Mass for an exploratory discussion. Training will be organised from time to time and before major festivals.
Altar Servers who have been serving regularly for at least 7 months are admitted to the Guild of St Stephen each spring and are awarded with the Guild Medal which is worn around the neck. Silver and gold medals are given to senior servers on the recommendation of the parish priest.
