“The Guild of Saint Stephen is established to foster a deeper awareness and understanding of the liturgy by ministers of the altar and to improve understanding of and participation in the liturgy by parishes and communities.”

“Members of the Guild have Saint Stephen as their patron saint. St. Stephen was a deacon in the church. He assisted the apostles by his service to God’s people and was the first Christian to be martyred for the faith.”

90 Altar Servers from around the Melbourne Archdiocese, including 20 from our parish along with their family and friends attended this solemn occasion and the church witnessed the faith of young people.

As we congratulate all the Altar servers and their families, we are also grateful to our Archbishop Peter, our Priests, Parents and Guild of St.Stephen committee for encouraging our young people and giving this opportunity to grow in their faith journey.

Children, thank you once again for your “Yes” to serve at the altar, for the glory of God and your commitment to grow in your faith journey.

God bless you all.

Fr. Anil Mascarenhas
