GUILD OF ST STEPHEN FOR ALTAR SERVERS

Established in 1905 by the Catholic Archbishop Francis Bourne of Westminster, the Guild of St Stephen has spread and developed since then, and is active in many parishes in the Archdiocese of Birmingham.

The Guild of St Stephen has one concern; promoting and supporting the highest standards of altar serving throughout the Catholic Church in Great Britain.

The Guild understands the underlying importance of altar serving for people in the modern era, not just to know what needs to be done during the Church’s most sacred celebrations but also why they need to be performed.

With this in mind the Guild provides unity and support between and through different parishes locally at a diocesan level and nationally between the different dioceses in Great Britain to foster faithful service of Guild members at the altar.

Faithful to this vision, the Guild constantly strives to serve God worthily and with deeper understanding.
