Altar Serving

In the recent past, we have suffered from a shortage of altar servers at St Mary Magdalens as some of our older servers moved away to attend higher education at universities and sadly younger replacements have not been forthcoming. An attempt is being made to turn this around and Fr Paul is actively engaging with our young people, male and female, to encourage them to participate in the church's liturgies in this important way, and so contribute to the whole community's participation in a more fruitful worship of God.

If you, or your children, would like to become altar servers at St Mary Magdalens, please speak to Fr Paul or use the contact form. Ongoing training will be provided over time to allow our altar servers to take increasingly more responsible roles in our services and provide them with a greater understanding of what they are doing so that they may serve with increasing reverence and prayerfulness and thereby be led to a deepening response to their vocation in life.
