Altar Servers



The Guild Altar Servers at Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Sawston was erected on 23rd of April 2018 by the Right Reverend Alan Hopes, Bishop of East Anglia.


It officially became a member of the Guild of St. Stephen on 22nd June 2018, Branch Number EA40, by a Diploma of Affiliation signed by Cardinal Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster.

Boys and girls having received First Holy Communion could become altar servers at Our Lady of Lourdes Church after some practical training by the Parish Priest and senior altar servers. After a year of faithful serving, the altar server will be officialy enrolled and awarded a bronze medal.

It would be good if parents could encourage their children to become altar servers, to support them during their training and their serving at the altar of the Lord.
