Guild of Saint Stephen
Saint Stephen was chosen as the patron of Altar Servers because he was a dedicated servant in the early Church and gave his life for his belief in Christ.
The members of the Guild of Saint Stephen serve each Saturday and Sunday at Mass, and sometimes during the week.
During their time of training, Altar servers learn to do all of the roles that are needed to ensure that the Mass is celebrated properly, and with reverence
