Altar servers play an important role in our parishes.
So we're inviting them to the Gillis Centre in Edinburgh for a day of training, activities, testimonies...and games!
Servers should bring a packed lunch, comfortable clothes and the robes they normally wear for serving at Mass (don't worry if you can't bring them).
We will conclude with Mass, during which Archbishop Leo Cushley will present medals to those participating in the Guild of St Cuthbert.
Speak to your parish priest for details.
**Please ensure under 18s have a completed parental consent form - ask your parish priest for one or email fr email@example.com. It should be completed by all servers under 18 and this is responsibility of each parish to organise.
We look forward to welcoming you!
