On 1 September 2018 Archbishop Cushley launched the Guild of St Cuthbert, a new group for altar servers in the Archdiocese. All altar servers are welcome to join. The enrolment for the new guild will take place at the Altar Servers’ Day on Saturday 21 September at the Gillis Centre, Edinburgh (11am-3pm), at which altar servers will be presented with their medals. To be enrolled in the scheme, altar servers are asked to:
1) serve at 10 Sunday Masses; 2) attend a practice/training session in their parish; 3) write a short reflection on altar serving. Please note: enrolment forms (ie record of serving at Mass and essay) need to be handed in to the parish office by Thursday 29 August at the latest in order that the Archdiocese can prepare the medals and allocate prizes for the best essays. Fr Galbraith hopes to provide transportation.
