ALTAR SERVERS This ministry has an important place in the life of the Parish. Altar Servers add to the smooth running and the dignity of all our Services, and they remind us that we are not spectators at Mass, but active participants in the celebration of the mysteries of faith. New Servers who have received their First Holy Communion are welcomed, and a short course of training is provided.

For more information, please contact The Clergy, 423 446 or clergy@stalbanmacc.org.uk
