Following a successful period of training, altar servers can be enrolled into the Guild of St Stephen, providing your parish is itself enrolled into the Guild. If you are unsure as to whether or not your parish is affiliated, please contact the Diocesan Director. The enrolment usually takes place during the Mass and involves the server(s) making the Guild Promise and being presented with the Bronze Guild Medal. Medals are available from the Diocesan Director and are currently priced at £5.00 each – this includes the red cord, postage & packing. A copy of the enrolment ceremony will be sent to you on request.
Silver Medals can be awarded to servers on completion of 10 years of enrolment in the Guild
Silver Plated Medal: £7.50 - Solid Silver Medal: £100
Gold Medals can be awarded to servers on completion of 50 years of enrolment in the Guild
If you are considering awarding either a silver or gold medal, please contact the Diocesan Director who will send you the application form for completion. The application will need to be supported by your Parish Priest and you should apply in good time – this is particularly so if you are ordering a solid silver or gold medal (price on application) as we have to obtain these from Westminster.
