Altar servers from across the Archdiocese came together at the Gillis Centre in Edinburgh today (3 September) for a day of games, talks, and instruction.

The day ended with Mass celebrated by Archbishop Leo Cushley, who also presented serves with the medal of the Guild of St Cuthbert, the club for altar servers in the Archdiocese.

He thanked them for their service to their parish, saying:"Servers have been important in the history of the Church and when you put the cross of The Guild of St Cuthbert on it's a sign of your service.  You do this on the altar discreetly and prayerfully.

The day was run by Fr Jamie McMorrin, along with Fr Martin Eckersley and Fr Robert Taylor along with senior servers from St James' Parish in St Andrews.
