SUNDAY, MAY 21, 2017 @ 9:30 A.M. MASS

The second investiture of Altar Servers into the St. Stephen’s Guild will take place during the 9:30 am Mass on Sunday, May 21. The St. Stephen’s Guild is an international Confraternity established and given indulgences by Pope St. Pius X. Its purpose is to encourage the highest standards of serving at the Church’s liturgy and so contribute to the whole community’s participation in a more fruitful worship of God. To provide altar servers with a greater understanding of what they are doing so that they may serve with increasing reverence and prayerfulness and thereby be led to a deepening response to their vocation in life. To unite servers of different parishes and dioceses for their mutual support and encouragement. Altar Servers who have received the Sacrament of Confirmation and are proficient in serving at the altar are eligible for membership.
