  1. Many congratulations to the newly enrolled servers to the Guild of St. Stephen. Their commitment and service at Mass,to the Priest and Parish is much appreciated. God bless you all.

  2. I am a member of the Guild in Melbourne Australia and we have a black shoe code when serving mass Just noticed from the photo above that the young children servers have sand shoes on is this found wanting in all the parish churches in England.

    • Hi Martin
      We have considered black shoe codes. However on balance we prefer to just ask the servers to arrive promptly, clean and tidy and to do their best. We don’t want the fact that some children don’t have black shoes to be a barrier to faithful service. I’m not really sure about other parishes but I think that there will be a mix.
