The Medal of the Guild of St Stephen.
In the centre, the letters XP are the first two letters of the name ‘Christ’ in Greek. At the top, is the Crown of Victory given by God to everyone who overcomes evil, especially those who die for him. At the bottom are the palm branches, traditional signs of martyrs who died for Christ.
Around the edge are the Latin words of the Guild motto:
CUI SERVIRE REGNARE EST. = TO SERVE CHRIST IS TO REIGN.
In our Parish, a group of boys and girls regularly serve during Mass to assist the Priest in the celebration of the Liturgy. Anyone who has made their Holy Communion is eligible to become an Altar Server. Full training is given and all items required are provided.
The Training Program for 2019 will start at 10am in St Simon Stock Church on Saturday 2nd November and will last for approximately 1 hour. All applicants, as well as new and existing Servers, are invited to attend this first session together with at least one of their parents/guardians. There are 3 consecutive sessions in all, so all applicants are required to attend the next 2 Saturdays (9th & 16th Nov) at 10am. These will be practice sessions and parents/guardians are welcome, but are not required to attend.
