Bishop Kieran Celebrates Role of Servers

Servers from parishes all over the diocese joined Bishop Kieran at Arundel Cathedral last Saturday to celebrate the annual Guild of St Stephen Mass. The servers from St John the Evangelist Parish in Horsham this year provided the team to serve the Mass. Bishop Kieran in his homily reminded all servers present that they played an important role at each Mass they take part in, not just in the assistance they give to Bishops, Priest and Deacons but because they are a symbol of the wider call of service that all Christians are called to.

After the homily the Bishop enrolled a dozen young boys and girls as members of the Guild. They were warmly welcomed by their fellow servers and members of the congregation.

At the end of Mass the servers together with parents, friends and family, at the invitation of the Diocesan Director of the Guild, Fr Dominic O'Hara, gathered in St Mary's Hall for refreshments. They are all looking forward to returning in a year's time on Saturday 8th October at 2pm for this joyful celebration with Bishop Kieran.
