Altar servers across the Archdiocese are invited to join the live streaming of the Guild of St Stephen Mass to renew their Guild promises with Bishop William Kenney.

The Mass will celebrated at St Chad's Cathedral at 10am on Saturday 6 March 2021.

As part of the celebration servers (young and old, whether at home or in church, vested or not) are encouraged to send a picture of themselves holding their Guild Medal, so the Vocations team can create a montage poster in lieu of the annual official photo at the Mass.

Servers are invited to send the picture to [email protected]



Disclaimer: By sending your photo, you consent to the Diocesan Vocations Office using your image to create a montage photo (in place of the official photo taken at the annual Guild Mass).

You can withdraw your consent at any time, by emailing this address but that will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw consent. This montage will be used for promotional purposes on our website, leaflets and on next year’s Mass booklet. No names will be shown on the montage.

Once the montage is created, we will not retain individual photos and will dispose of them securely. If aged under 16 years, please ask a parent/carer to send the photo.

Your email sending the photo to us will be retained as evidence of consent until such time as the consent is withdrawn or the timescale set out below elapses. Those emails will then be disposed of securely.

We will keep and use the montage routinely for no more than three years and will then store it securely. From the store, it may be used very occasionally - for example on significant anniversaries or as part of a retrospective. The stored copy will be kept indefinitely.
