Altar Servers

The parish actively promotes the value of serving at the altar and is fortunate in having large teams in each church for weekend liturgies. 

Altar serving is open to anyone who has made their First Holy Communion.To become an Altar Server, simply approach the parish priest, or contact the parish office. Training is organised from time to time and before major festivals.

Altar Servers who have been serving regularly for at least 12 months are admitted to the Guild of St Stephen each January 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.
