St. Joseph's Church has an active group of altar servers (both boys and girls), within the parish, who serve on a regular basis, primarily on the Saturday/Sunday Masses, as well as the special holy days throughout the liturgical calendar. Their role is to assist the priest and/or deacon, as well as helping the congregation to pray.
Children can become altar servers once they have made their First Communion, and we encourage adults to join us too.
St Joseph's Church's is a member of the Archconfraternity of St. Stephen, and a number of altar servers are enrolled within the Guild (shown by them having a bronze medal - no matter how long they have served, at present - around their neck).
If anyone would like to serve then speak to Father Tony (Parish Priest). Alternatively, contact Martin Stebbings (St. Joseph's Church MC) on 07771 523170.
