Last Sunday, we presented 3 of our young servers with their Bronze Guild of St Stephen medals, having each served a year. Congratulations to all of them. Please keep them in your prayers.
It is the servers privilege to assist the priest and people in the celebration of the liturgy of the Mass. This is one of the most rewarding and specialised ministries in the church.
The Mass is the central act of prayer for any parish and it is celebrated with simple dignity. Those who are called to serve represent the community around the altar. This should be a joy and privilege.
A good server is one who not only knows what to do but also understands why it is being done. To assist them in this, instruction is given to explain why they are doing certain things.
